    Purchased a project 2001 xlt 1200

    Just purchased a new project. Looking at the damage to the middle cylinder I know I at least need new pistons, crank, cylinder and carbs rebuilt. You guys think im better off getting a remanufactured motorClick image for larger version.

    Well ive checked this engine out and I don't like the looks of it so I'm going to get another case and start fresh. This build will probably set me back $2000+ but at least I know it will be done right.

    @derick441 have you looked into SBT? I'm not sure if they deal with 2 smokers.

    I was considering getting one from them. Ended up purchasing a good case and new wsm cylinder and 3 pistons. I got all the gaskets, seals, powervalves and carb kits. The only thing I need is the crank. Ill post some pics when I start working on the project been busy at work.

    WSM is the way to go. SBT have their issues.

    I was able to pull the motor out and get the new one redone last weekend. Going to get a chain hoist to put this in as it is way to heavy for me to drop in. The rebuild went pretty well its the exhaust system that I know is going to put up a fight that worries me. Hope to get it in this weekend tho.
