Got the bike apart and engine out last week and today I disassembled the engine.
Everything seems to be in good, or at least decent shape. Tomorrow I will inspect the engine parts more closely but from what I saw today the only obvious thing was some pitting on the cam followers.
I believe I have everything for the transmission except for the bracket that holds the oil cooler, however Charlie M has very kindly donated one. Thank you!!

I have also decided some more on the build. It will be a 850T look-a-like (green with gold stripes) with twin discs, foot boards and convert transmission. The 850T looks has really grown on me, itís a no-nonsense, basic bike, and the plan is that this will be my bike to use around town.
I already have the 850 T parts I need (tool box lids, instrument cluster, triangular crash bars, seat bar, etc). And donít fear; I will keep the critical Convert parts If I ever change my mind.
I think I will call this one a ConverT.

I had the same dilemma Klinkhammer and converted my G5 to a T3 FB lookalike in black.  Iím happy with the look but the stock convert/G5 look grows on me every day.  Either way youíll have a great ride.

I don't think you will be able to fit the 850T toolboxes, as the trans fluid tank sits there on the left hand side.

I think she is beautiful as is. The black and white is classy, like it's wearing a tuxedo. If it were mine, I'd get rid of the wind screen and fine some black side cases.

The toolbox will not fit on neither side, I'm just fitting the lids  :wink:
