Hey all, before anyone reads this let me say this. I did this project on a 2006 Suzuki Boulevard M50, so no... its not a Ninja, or even a sportbike. But i figured yall would enjoy it anyways.

Mods if this should be in Mechanical please move it. I put it in general because its not Kawi specific.

I am still unsure why the engine blew up on me, but it did. I was riding along at about 75mph and all of a sudden it sounded like a bucket of bolts was getting slammed around inside my engine. I immediately pulled over and towed it home. After taking it to three shops, I decided it would be cheaper to buy a rebuilt engine and change it myself, instead of paying a shop to rebuild my busted one. So thats exactly what I did. I had never done anything like this before and I feel very accomplished now that it is complete. I also had about $1800 sunk into this project so I was going to be very mad if something went wrong. I've been riding it for about a week and its running better than ever. Now what you have all been waiting for... PICTURES
