I have a 2004 1200XL. The bike ran great right up until I trashed the case! I want to buy a used set of cases and rebuild the motor. What all years are compatible with my 2004? Also is there a manual that shows you how to completely build the motor? I know its going to be a challenging project. I plan to use it in a flat track inspired rigid! Thanks for any help!

I don't know about year compatibilities but maybe 2004-2006. A service manual will go a long way with the rebuild. They're pretty good with step by step procedures.
Good luck and welcome to HST.

Thanks for helping! Do you know if I will need any special tools to tear it down and rebuild it?

I will have to defer to someone who actually knows.
