    newb with 2001 gp800r


    as the title says i am a newb and i bought a 2001 yamaha gp800r last summer with 60 hours on it. it was a blast to ride, but mid way into the summer the ski broke down , motor siezed. i took the top end off to find the piston blew apart at the wrist pin and the chunks put a couple holes in the block and cracked a jug.

    since then i have ordered another motor and am just wondering what i should do to the new but rebuilt motor to make it more reliable, also i should say i am using parts off my blown motor for the new one, like the carbs, exhaust, and oil pump. any help on this will be greatly apprieciated.
