2003 Kawasaki STXR Fix, Sell, or Part Out
I bought this thing from a dealer in pieces. One cylinder and head is damaged. I do not know my best option. Normally I would just fix it, but this one has a lot of after market stuff on it. I was wondering if this stuff will make it temperamental. I don't want to put it back together and have problems getting it to run right. The other option would be to sell it broken or just sell it for the parts.
Any thoughts? Here are some pictures of the non stock stuff.

That has some nice parts on it. The head is easy the dome is replacable for about $40. Push in on the spark plug hole and the dome will pop out, there are some nubbers engraved on the back. Post what it says and that will tell us more about the motor setup. The cylinders are nickasil plated and can be fixed. How bad is it damaged? The other factor is the bottom end make sure the piston didnt break up and escape out the bottom. You may want to post some pics of the damaged parts that may tell us more.
If you part it out let me know what you want for the heads. I know of several guys looking for carbs.
Single pipe setups are pretty reliable even with those parts. But some of the questions I asked above wil tell more about what you have for sure.

Those cylinders are aluminum with nicasil coating. You can send them off to us chrome to be repaired. From what I can see in the pics I would say the cost to fix that cylinder would be $235. That would get it back to std bore. You cant just bore it to the next over and throw in new pistons. How is the crank and lower cases?
That has some signs of being a race boat. Check that dome size, that will tell whether it was a flat top setup.

Ill take the heads...
Whats it got on the bottom for under water gear.
Plus how much did ya by it for will help ....see if it's worth parting or not, you could probably get about $2800 parted...roughly

Well worth putting together. The only parts you might want to return to stock would be the exhaust ( not a fan of the Dominator) and maybe the carbs depending on whether you want to tune them in or not.
If you decide to part it out I would like the manifolds.

The cases look fine. You might try flushing that bearing out with some brake cleaner. I have had those bearings get some debrise in them when they go, flushed them out and they were fine.
Looks like you got plenty of intrest in the parts
