    My worst fears are confirmed. ('01 XLT 1200)

    Finally got my engine out, and on the bench, and tore it down.

    #2 cylinder's gone, #2 piston is TRASHED.
    #2 forward crank bearing threw the cage into the crankcase.

    The #1 and #3 top ends look perfect.

    I should be able to get away with a crank kit, and a replacement #2 cylinder and piston. It's marked "4" if anyone has any. (I'm also gonna repost this in classifieds)

    Oh, I also effed up the aluminum bracket that the carbs bolt to - in between the reeds and the carbs. Gonna need one of those too.

    Pictures to come as soon as my wife gets back with my camera.

    Sounds pretty bad bro. I'm stuck in a similar situation right now. Don't know whether to rebuilt my XLT 1200 engine or install a 1300 in there. I know it has to hit mid 60's with the current upgrades I have. U mway want to concider the same thing. I wonder why they never brought out these XLT's with 1300's before discontinuing them. Hmmm

    With the guesswork I've done, I'm probably looking at around $1200 to get my engine back together...

    If I can get a 1300 for that price, I"m all over it!
    remember, a crank kit is included in that price... So I can't just buy 3 1300 cans.

    I think it may be a bit more but just a couple hundred which I think it's well worth it. I mean, might as well right?

    okay.. I"ve got $1800 total to spend on this project.. How much would a 1300 engine cost me?

    like, bolt on the carbs, bolt on my exaust and go?
    If I want to build up my 1200 into a 1300, I still need a crank kit + all 3 jugs&pistons.

    Ok dude, you & I have too many things in common right now. Take a look at my thread. Infact, I just posted something pretty much like ur response. We are exactly on the same boat. Unfortunately the 1300s are fuel injected so our next step is simply to boar out or 1200 into 1300's or just buy the 1300 engine. The carbs would then need to be tweaked to the 1300 specs. Here, take a look at my thread...

    You will have to re-jet for a 1300. Also new head, besides 1300 pistons, cyls, and valves. Where are you getting your prices ? SBT ?

    I just saw you are in Baytown.

    Yeah, forgot about the top for the cans

    I'm extremely new to working on these skis.. I'm getting my prices from pretty much everywhere..

    Carl at Island Racing referred me to "Hot Rods" for the crank.. $700 from them.

    The cans & pistons I'm guessing around $200-250 via the classifieds

    I offered a guy $60 for a replacement reed plate. Havent heard a definate yes/no yet.

    It doesn't look like I have any powervalve damage, bu the inside of the crankcase is marred some.. Here's the pictures I promised.
