    LA is the way to go....and just do the one and bore to 81.5mm if the others are not hurt, slap in some new pistons etc. I would recommend you change the crank seals and inspect the bearings etc before you buy anything to ensure your not placing a new top end into something that's trashed.

    just wondering y 81.5mm and not 84mm? i want to make this thing fast maybe get it ported 1200 cdi all that good stuff. or will their be not much difference between 81.5 and 84mm. as for the single sleeve why i asked is bc with the money i saved on the motor i could spend on sleeves. but if i can get buy with one sleeve thats awesome. Crank and seals look very good to my eye...thanks tony

    You can go 84 mm or larger but you need 1200 cylinders.
