- You should be good on the 800. My 01 800 at about 125hrs and the guy I bought it from kept running it on a broken oil line till it wouldn't run because of no compression. It had aluminum from Piston all over in chunks and flakes. I cleaned the crank and base out by filling the base full with fuel and turning it over by hand and then sucking out the fuel when all the aluminum was stired up. I did this till it was clean several times. The rod clearance was good so I went for it. Technically I should have replaced it. It's running strong and has been for 4 yrs now. My 02 I bought with 23hrs 3yrs back. it's as pristine as the day it came off the showroom. It has about 70hrs now. I always get complements wherever I ride.
