I love the look of that sled. I still miss my Ultra Touring I sold last year.

You may want to look into why the cylinder got scored and fix it so it doesn't happen again.

The engine is pretty reliable even with the tripple pipes. Sucks a lot of gas. It has a slight gear whine comming out of the gear driven water pump which is normal. Awesome tripple sound.

I can't recommend you re-use the piston. Why don't you put the new one in?

Only true way to find out what the cylinder bore is. You will have to measure it using a Micrometer.

The first thing I would get is a manual for this machine! That piston is garbage ,look at this thing, it's half tore apart! The water pump is located in front between the mag & center cylinder ,under the exhaust ports.

Don't get to antsy about riding this machine for a while,she's going to be a projet ! You need to get the parts all aranged where they go,clean & inspect! You need to read up on this machine , you have Nicisil cylinders in that motor which can not be bord out they only can be replated.The water pump is a major issue with these motors,they have to be inspected once & a while.

Why don't you start reading my tread (Ultra 680 Compression) build & you will get a heads up on what it looks like & some things to look out for pics start on page 5.

The 1997 and 1998 Ultra water pump is different than the 1996 water pump. 1996 was the bad year as it was lubricated with an oil reservoir system. Once seals leaked, the impeller bearings/bushings would go dry and wear fast. '97 and '98 pumps are lubricated by fuel/oil wash just like the crank bearings. My '97 never had a problem.
