There isn't anything complex inside an engine. Its not like its a servo or anything.

Carb isn't anything more than a couble needle screws and o-rings. The engine itself really deosn't have anything fragile in it as long as your clean and careful.

I know. I just dont like to open them up. Its one of my quirks. I am an auto technician so I do work on much more complicated engines than ours.

In the past I usually just run a case of fuel or so through an engine and sell it before I run into any issues. Nowadays I dont really have the money to do that anymore so I am gonna to have to start getting into them.

My last Ninja I expected to rebuild it and keep for a while. It started making a bearing noise in qualifying but I tried to stretch it and run the main anyway and it came apart and ruined the engine. I am about 3 gallons into my new one and plan to probably get into it and replace the bearings and rod after another gallon or so...I probably just get a new one and save this one for backup though.

I have a WS7 L2G Turbo with around 7 gallons through it and there is no play at all. I think I'll stick with RB.

Forget that, I run SH engines,seal it, break in with a heat gun and forget it. Next time it is opened in in the landfill by the bulldozer. If you by a 3 to 4 hundred dollar engine and the rod goes after 1-2 gallons sent it back to the them!!
