I have a 2004 Yami XLT1200 that the engine has failed on. One cylinder is not firing. I checked the spark and they look good. I check the compresion and found cylinder 1 had 100psi 2 had 0psi and 3 had 115psi. So I need to do an engine rebuild but am not sure what parts I should be ordering to do it. Do I need the full gasket kit? Do I need the carb rebuild kit? I am planing on tearing it down in about 2 weeks. Any help would be great. I am pretty mechanically incline but have not ever done a rebuild so I am looking for a little guidance on what to expect for work and cost. Thanks

XLT1200 rebuild

Ok, I pulled the top of the engine off down to the cylinders. I found that the piston for cylinder 2 was beat up around the edges. The other two looked good (I will post a link to the pictures soon). How do I know if the cylinder needs replaced/repaired? Can it be repaired. I saw an internal ring on the cylinder wall but see no part listed in the parts list for this.

My friend knows about your problem. I will contact him first. I will tell it to you the information that he will give as soon as possible. Just keep in touch on me. :D
