    Sorry John.. but the guy with the engine is a real dumbass .. he keeps postponing the delivery time of the finished engine! it was supposed to be ready for me in week 5..

    I can´t do anything on the bike until I have the engine back in the frame..

    .. Looks like I will be picking up my engine tomorrow .. after 7 weeks! Guess what - He has done - Nothing!

    I will have to disassemble it and check everything myself.. it will be my first 4 stroke engine rebuild, hopefully the guides in the sxv section will get me through..

    just wanted to update you..

    regards - a very disappointed Mathias

    Sorry to hear that Mat, it was coming along nicely as well Sometimes it's just best to do things yourself instead of relying on other people..

    Thats a total bummer Mat,
    but at least doing it yourself you will do it right.
    If its to the standard of the rest of your work it will be a great motor

    I got a the last parts that was missing from the engine yesterday. Now I only need to get the money from him, so that I can order the new spareparts.
    If and when I get the money, I will order the parts and start assembly of the engine.

    .. oh by the way.. I got a great offer, so bought a new bike this week ooops :P
