    Guess it's time for a complete rebuild.

    So my buddy and I picked up this 98 TigerShark 1000R for $400. We finally got around to pulling it apart... piston 1 is decimated. The crank is seized and the crank case is damaged. Both sides of #1 piston are like this. Thought I would share lol

    ouch...thats a good one. Make sure you check out everything and all so that lovely disaster dosnt happen again, but i guess if everything is getting replaced there is not much to check. Just out of curiosity, how hard is it to find parts for these things?

    Wow how did the motor hold on long enough to fail that badly, and I was thinking the same thing, is it wise to pick a Tigershark up even in running condition, it has to be getting harder everyday to work on them.

    Not too bad honestly. My buddy and I are close to finishing the complete rebuild. We bought a new bottom end and pretty much everything else new. Got done measuring components and checking tolerances a Couple days ago. Checking the carbs now. Including the ski I'd say we are about $1500 into the build. I don't think we have to spend much more (under 100 more).
