eBay kits

So if I can’t find I shop I was looking around and eBay has these kits that come with a 416 cylinder, wiseco piston, stage 2 hotcam, timing chain, and cometic gaskets. Would you trust this ? I’m sure everything is fine but it’s the cylinder I’d be worried about.

Oh my bad. It had to deal with mods so I just figured this was the best spot. Sorry
Oh wow it’d be cheaper? I figured it’d be more just for the labor
Would I need to send the piston too? I know a long time ago you said a good machinist will need the piston to make the bore exact.

Oh wow that’s not bad at all
Webcam is probably what I’ll go with because I’ve heard hotcam isn’t extremely good. If I were to get a hotcam it’d be the stage 2 but webcam just has a bunch of numbers that don’t mean anything to me haha. I was just wondering which one would suit a 416 the best.
I’d really like to pick that up but I’m not quite ready. So anything over .350 has to have shortened valve guides? And where would I get the hardened rockers?
Oh ok I see. How hard of a job is putting in the shortened guides?
Yeah I’m definitely gonna have to remember the word budget lol. Shoot mine is so stock I still have the stock tires LOL it’s only a 2013 but for stock tires they’re pretty darn good. What’s a good budget clutch in your opinion?
I’d love to strip mine down and get it powder coated. I hate the stock look. Hideous I tell you! Haha. I saw on here that another guy was having the weird grinding noise I’m having and somebody was wondering if he bent a valve or something like that because he took the head off I believe and he said the sound went away. How exactly would that happen? Jump off timing and just bend it maybe ?
Ok gotcha. And it seems a little low on compression if that helps anything. I haven’t tested it but it just seems a little low. If it’s even a slight incline or decline it’ll roll a little with me on it.
And I’m just wondering how that would make the compression low. I reckon it’s low because I can take my foot and put it on the back tire and slowly push it over in gear.
I see. Awhile ago I thought the clutch was going out because it slipped really bad once but it hasn’t done it in awhile so idk. Definitely gonna upgrade it though
Could the grinding be a bad cam bearing thing? And I’m into the engine now. How am I going to know if the timing chain is bad?
Yup the chain is fine. One bearing is completely silent. The other is quiet but I can barely hear it. If it gets spinning fast enough like while you’re riding would it get THAT loud? I’m just wondering if that’s what it is.
Gosh I hope it’s the bearing. I was about to take the head off until I thought about the bearings then I decided to wait. No reason to get into extra work
I just noticed I don’t have the decompression pin. Weird
I’m not even sure what to say. I just want you to look at these pics. I don’t remember seeing the slots cut from the stud holes on other people’s quads. It’s got 2 if them like that weird idk

And yes it’s still on but no pin. There’s definitely been someone messing with this before I had it
My cylinder and piston is scratched up a little too lol. And that’s alright Led. I’m honestly not on here enough to know if I was in the right spot or not haha
