I have an extra cylinder/piston, so in theory could build up a spare engine if I sourced more parts. Am trying to determine engine year of manufacture. The engine cases are silver, it has newer countershaft sprocket (so 2000 or newer) and engine serial number is KL650AEA20411. Have tried Googling this to no avail. I seem to remember stumbling across a cross reference table somewhere (found one for VIN #s) for engines - can anyone point me to where I could determine what year this engine was made? Thnx

He has a list of serial numbers by year.
