1990 KLR Tengai Resto-mod.... Maybe

Hey, I realized that I've been posting in the Introductin thread so far, So I thought I bring this project over to the area where it belongs!
Here is the link to where I've been so far. https://www.klrforum.com/introductio...brand-new.html

Update List:
1- I bought a 1990 KLR Tengai locally in Phoenix, AZ
2- It was run with VERY low oil which ceized the cams, Kacr exploded, Timing chain broke, and the timing gear on the crank "ruined" the teeth, so I decided to replace the engine.
3- found side fairings in London for a decent price, they're being shipped.
4- Speedometer "set up" was purchased from CA
5- New engine found in LA (possibly 35K miles)
6- Rebuilt the brakes, front suspension, cleaned/ lubed frame and swing arm componants.

Basically I'm ready to get an engine put back in, but I've run into trouble. The transmission feels "wrong" on the CA engine, while the crank is no good on the AZ engine (the one that was removed from the bike). Read up on the other post for details (I belive the CA engine to be 2008 or newer and don't know what parts are interchangable internally)

If anyone has any thoughts or knows of a good machine shop in PHX that I can take this case to to get new bearings and seals pressed in when I split the case, I would be greatful! THANKS

OH, Also for the Tengai Experts here... This is a picture of my bike, and the fairings I purchased are the "other" paint job style. Will These blues match? I assume not... Probably going to have to do a whole paint job if thats the case. Ideas?
Thanks again.
