Rocker arms !!!!! and other stuff

A while back I needed a replacement arm and happened to stumble on an ebay listing that seemed too good to be true. It was true! I got a full engines worth of arms for the price of one! After that I tore apart my engine and am now sitting on a whole heckofalotta rocker arms and would love to see them go to making other bikes run. I think I have 15. I have a full disassembled 07 250 engine too that I don't need. If you need something let me know and we can talk about shipping, or you can come get it in kansas city! Hope I can help some people out!

So, the story with the engine is as follows. Bought the bike for next to nothing and it was mid cafe racer project and barely ran. I found out it had a broken rocker so I ordered my lucky find of a full set of rocker arms. In the meantime I decide to replace some other stuff and next thing you know the whole thing is completely disassembled.cleaned everything, all new gaskets, carb clean and rebuild. Put it all back together and get it to run but pretty rough, no carb sync and running pods and open headers. I'm about to start the process of making things run right and all of a sudden I notice coolant coming from the head gasket on exhaust side. Instead of just trying to re-torque the head bolts I gave up and tore it mostly apart again.

Tl;dr I think I have the whole engine minus a gasket set, but it had pretty high miles and you could tell it had a rough life. Honestly don't think it would be worth the cost and hassle of shipping it.

free parts galore

So I went through my extra stuff and laid it out. Most of it is in good shape, but has been sitting for about a year or so.

Giving away carburetors?? Dang. Those used to go for $200 a set on ebay. Same with rocker arms, $100+ isn't uncommon. I've had a set in my toolbox for 2+ years at this point, wrapped in an oily paper to keep them from rusting. I don't have the bike anymore, but I can't bring myself to throw them out or pay to ship them to someone...
