    Complete teardown and rebuild on 03 xlt 1200

    This is a ski I bought a two weeks ago. The second pic you see is exactly how I bought it. I knew it was going to need a complete teardown and rebuild from the bottom up....

    This is where I stand... Looks nice right???????????? Now I have to deal with this!!! I removed the the entire block the first night, since the stinger and top-end were already removed.
    I've got a couple replies on another post ("What happened to this Piston") to get a btter idea of what happened, but still not 100%. ANY AND MORE HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRICIATED. THANKS!!!!!

    I'm doing a tear down myself. Believe it is because oil wasn't getting to one of the cylinders and seized it. I'm sure I need a new Crank or Piston.

    Do you know where you can get a good step by step on how to tear the engine down for removal?

    Either oil line came off or carbs are plugged up.
