picked up a yz465 complete engine today
« on: May 23, 2016, 11:24:19 AM »
well, i would like to say that it's a runner.. it's not. still worth the $50.00 I paid. crank is shot. it wasn't stored correctly. water in bottom end. I was able to clean up the cylinder , it's already 1st over. it will need boring to 2nd over to get it true. the ignition parts will work in my 490 but I'm not sure if the cylinder / head will interchange. can someone answer that question? the rest is pretty hammered. clutch basket grooved real bad and the case is broken behind the kickstarter. just a small piece missing, maybe it could be welded. clutch cover has a small crack in a wear mark, I suppose it could fix it with some epoxy in a pinch. i havnt split the case yet. does anyone know if any of the gears will interchange with a 490?

Drive shaft is the same but main axle is different....some of the gears but not all are the same. Check yourself by clicking the part numbers....

You can swap the transmission as a complete assembly no dramas
