I guess that steering dampener was an oem item, I spotted a few of those at the auction and was wondering about that.

Nobody looking for a project??? Save me from myself, buy it before I start disassembly...  :-\

Oh go ahead!  one suggestion would be to check compression and see if you can get it running. Unless you're a purist with deep pockets....  Either way we can guide you or point you at someone friendly who can.  -Alan



Oops, stuck engine! sorry about that.  Marvel Mystery Oil is my choice, put a few spoonfuls down the sparkplug holes and wait a day or two. Heat cycle the engine with a heat gun or a torch, then some more mystery oil and time.  Heat cycle it a few times over a few days and try to turn the crank, I dunno if that engine has a nice bolt on the rotor you can get a wrench on...but there may be something.  You can always put the bike in gear and rock it back and forth to help free the engine before you disassemble.

I've worked the rotor bolt with a wrench. I can get a few degrees of rotation, but I'm pretty sure the piston is stuck, or possibly a valve is stuck in the open position. Won't be 100% sure till I open it up, but really don't have the $$ to do it right. I agree a runner would be easier to sell, but it's just not possible at this time.
