Thanks.naw, I sold it to a friend shortly, he rode it as a comuter untill he wrecked it in june of 06, so he tacked quite a bit on.
The bike ran strong untill then, he still has it, and swers he will bring it back to life some day.
It's good to see a good solid outcome of a case mismatch. With modern manufacturing techniques it should be more likely to work but you only need to be a couple of thou out on oil clearances for it to go bad.
And good to know I'm not the only guy that refuses to part with my bikes
