    2003 Yamaha engine failure

    New member her guys! So if some of my questions have already been answered bear with me as it will take me some time to navigate through this site.
    So I pulled the trigger on a 03 Yamaha xlt 1200 yesterday. When I went down to look at it the gentleman indicated someone stole the battery and cut the cables. So I wasn’t able to make sure it ran unfortunately. That was probably my first mistake. I get going today down to my local Yamaha dealer buy a brand new battery get it in repair the cables and it does nothing but click. So I pull plugs to see what’s going on and rear cylinder doesn’t look good. So I feel a bit energetic and start to pull the motor apart and find definitely the jug is bad as well as the piston but it doesn’t stop there I have a rod through the lower end as well.
    All this being said I do have a few questions. Is the 03 xlt 1200 a power valve motor? I happen to have a lower end sitting around from a 2000 gp 1200r when brand new power valves in it as I purchased it for a previous project that feel through.
