For an 2004 RXP....with blown SC....Expect the following...
- Pull motor, split case, flush everything...
- Freshen motor with new bearings and rings...
- Replace all valves, 2004/05...prone to breakage...
- Replace flywheel bolts, 2004/05...prone to breakage...
- Replace oil jet/restrictor that is in block, 2003-05 it would starve valvetrain of oil when prolong WOT run were done...

Danny is on it 100%
Its a pita but its gotta be done..
Only thing I can add is the timing chain and possible timing gears.
But for sure change the chain with everthing Danny said.
Your looking at some big $$$$

Use oem head gasket. And bolts need to be replaced.

Might be cheaper or almost the same $$$$ to buy a remaned engine and drop it in..
I've seen over 20+ sbt 4 stroke engines installed in the last 2 years with 0 issues.

thanks everyone, will look into those parts Vs. Sbt motor, I always had good luck with SBT Motors so may go that rout.

Im thinking of just going with a sbt motor, would save me alot of time

Derek45, I spend a lot of time with my ski job friend, he says that only use the SBT swap as last resort ... meaning you will get 1 year warranty with it because it will last @ least 1 year. If you plan to ride wot, or race, or keep ski ... the cost will be be about 25% higher & labor PITA, but if @ all possible rebuild or low time swap is better. I know $$$ is always a main concern. But rather pay big once ... that a lot all the time. Good Luck

Hey, I would say if SBT hasn't been having issues lately it's probably a good option to throw one in. Save some time, so you can be riding all summer long instead of wrenching.
