after a cold seizure with slight piston damage want are the chances it will be ok or do you think i,ll need to rebuild it.Why when I talk to the dealers they seam like this sled is voodoo and tell me to get rid of it.

They say that because it's a triple, and the triples were riddled with problems, especially with the middle cylinder. I've got a 780 triple and it's been a good sled. If it had a mild seize, that means metal welded to metal. Might want to check into it a little deeper.

Muratic acid will remove aluminum from the cylinder wall. Be very, very careful when using it full strength. Use a Q-Tip to apply it directly onto the aluminum. Muratic acid is commonly available where ever they carry pool chemicals.
