Ok so i went over to the help got the motor out of the bike today, now i got this from a guy that works in a shop in orlando fl.
any way we got it out and opened it up found that 2 rods only had half the bearings, and no oil pick up in it and he tolled me that he and his dad just rebuilt the motor LOL. so i bought this some time back for $200.00 as a parts bike the good part is that the cluch pack was new so i may get some use out the parts yet. when we are all done putting it back togather i'll post up what is good for sale. P.S. the crank on this motor may be bad :(
Thanks Mike

Sounds like a good day then. Let us know what parts are spare and good when you get yours running well again .

Just for interest,for some reason HONDA only use the left hand side big end shells to pass oil though the connecting rods end and lubricate the leftb hand ONLY cylinders. The right hand side big end shells do not have oil holes in them and this can be seen by the spare parts manual'
I have asked HONDA mechanics and even this excellent forum why this is the case but cannot get a definitive answer. Hope this helps

Good to hear the progress you have made. Need a ride report when you get a chance.
