    Budget build would run about $550-650 for parts, pistons, cyl boring, gaskets and jets.
    This would be for a carb model, EFI would be more.

    Iv'e been told by more than dealer you are better off to leave it an 883. It will sell better as such, plus the upgrades you can do to the stock bore are endless. I own a 2007 883 with just a full stage one upgrade that will rock your world! I'm not kidding. Get a good set of tuned pipe's, if it's efi, go with a fuel pack or something similar. there are a bunch out there. If it's carb, you will need to re-jet. Now the air cleaner is another story. I put on a SE air cleaner every time I checked the plugs they were way too rich. Ended up hand building an AC from a 87 2.8 blazer AC from a K&N filter in my old truck. If you like I could send pic's of how I did it. The plug's are perfect now. With a set of V&H short shots you can hear this 883 almost a mile away. NO JOKE! Hit it back, let us know, Keep it in the wind, HOLLYWOOD..............................

    STARY; also think about how long you plan to own the bike.

    - If you're going to keep it long-term then sure - rig it to run. Depending on which route you take (bore/re-build vs. 1200 kit) cost can run from $1000 - $1500.

    - If you plan to UG/sell in a few years - throw on a few upgrades (pipes, A/C, TFI, etc.) & you'll have some extra gain for ~$500 - $900.

    Just remember; it's your bike so do what feels right.

    Here's my 2 cents worth, after the 1200 upgrade .. do the headwork.
