KCW and Brad_G, Thanks for the feedback. I know I have good mechanical skills being an x-ray repair guy but I've never rebuilt an engine before and feeling a little intimidated by that thought once I took the tank off this bike. I've done tune-ups, brakes, radiator changes and oil changes but not as in-depth as a rebuild. But, for a few hundred bucks, it might be an enjoyable project where I could learn a bunch. And, at that price, if it never runs again, so be it. I'd have to negotiate half the garage for a period of time so more to think on. And, like I said, thanks for the input.
Brad_G, I'll chase that lead on the manual, Thanks again.
