99 XL1200 #3 cylinder trashed
I have the head off the cylinders and now need to remove the #3 cylinder and piston can someone point me to some step by step instructions...Please
I was also wondering how much damage is acceptable on the heads???
I have some more info and pics posted in the General Discussion thread as well...under 99 XLT stalls and takes a while to start.

see my thread called 3rd cylinder.
first question is what caused problem. mine was loss of oil line.
Its not as difficult as it sounds to replace cylinder. take the 4 bolts off the bottom of the cylinder and you must also losen the exhaust manifold a little as there are alignment pins that will catch on the cylinder (thanks osidebill). post pictures of piston and let the experts on here diagnose your piston/cylinder. they are very (very) good!
