    Motor died

    The motor on my '03 GP 1300 just died after I took it out the second time (First time I had a different problem-other thread). This ski turns out to be a nightmare, but that's what you get bying a used ski with no knowledge.
    Anyway, the ski dies on me and a friend towed me back. The motor lost slowly RPM and the died, there was nothing on the display even the peeping noise was gone. I thougt it would be just the battery, but after trying to jumpstart it with no luck (didn't even turn) I had a bad felling.
    So I started taking things apart and after I got the head off I knew my feelings where right about the motor.
    Check out photos, it doesn't look good.
    What should I do now? I guess I should take the crank out and take a look at it. What about the inlet (carb or injection whatever you call it) should I get some work done there to.
    Please give me a advice where I can get that stuff fixed, especially the cylinder and maybe the crank. Roughly price and how long it takes would also be helpfull. What parts should I get new and since I have to rake it apart what else should get done on a broken stock 03 motor.

    Looks like alot of rust on the tb's but my guess is failed oil injection. Feeder line may have been clogged from sitting. Just my guess.

    Can I get the cylinders just bored and honed? Any one knows how much that should cost?
    Where can I send it to get a big bore and $?
    Have to take out the crank the next few days, maybe it's still o.K. or is it scrap anyway?

    the nik-a-sil plating is an extremely hard coating that takes the "beating" instead of your freshly bored/honed walls. The amount of money you would save would not be worth skipping the nikasil'ing of the jugs.

    A big bore setup will run you around 1800-2200 depending and that is just the minimum of what it takes. That doesn't include crank work for reliability and such.
