Crazy, or realistic


If parts actually sell for prices like this, there won't be any complete bikes left! They'll all be parted out!

Yes, $2500! that's up there! Plus it's ugly! Looks like they pressure washed it with caustic carburetor cleaner?
I was going to try to get $1000 for a 77 KZ 1000 with a fresh Wiseco 1075 kit and good redone head. But the cases should be taken apart to clean and inspect. It's all complete. It ran for about a 1/2 hour down the street the numbskull said, who I got it from!
He told me he thought he bent a valve. Valves were good! He rolled the oil rings under and lost the cir-clips in 1 new piston! Trashed the liner. Wiseco's are up there $500+, plus the $150+ to bore cylinders. And a cheap valve grind job and stem seals R/R $300 +
Just another task on the list. Might just have to "OINK" it out on eBay over the winter.
And a note! Wiseco has changed their pistons and rings. Rings are thinner now and made in Japan.

So is that a good thing?

Same thickness and the ring lands appear to be in the same places. B)

And a note! Wiseco has changed their pistons and rings. Rings are thinner now and made in Japan.


Wiseco, like many companies like it, recently got bought up by Race Winning Brands, the new Wiseco pistons can be distinguished by the wrist pin oiling holes on the bottom. The new pistons have a groove in the wrist pin bore for oiling, no holes on bottom of wrist pin bore.
