Box up the engine, and ship it back to Austria. Enclose a note telling them how gently it was treated and what a POS it is. Maybe they will send you a new POS engine.

I can part the engine out on Ebay for enough to buy a DRZ

There is your answer then. Part it out, buy the DRZ and leave the Bandit alone.

Got a couple of inquirys on the forks with brakes and wheel so the Bandit is getting GSXR or Busa USD and a Busa rear shock. That will raise it about 1.5" so I can lower the pegs

Haven't rode the xt in a while. Miss it. Work is keeping me busy and other obligations take priority. I am working on my cardio, so I can ride all day with everyone.

Jeff would dislike the suspension of the xt. Plus, the XT doesn't have enough power.
