I went out riding around a couple of weeks ago on my 03 polaris predator 500 for a few hours and my chain came undone and jammed into the casing exposing the stator. Now I need a rebuild and not sure which road to take from here. Either buy a used bottom end and piece it all back together. Take it to a local shop or just gamble and buy a used engine from Ebay. What would some of you guys suggest.

Since you have all the pieces you are ahead of the game. Me, I'd clean it and epoxy it together, however if you're nervous about that, take it to a good welder and get thier opinion. I would be sure there aren't any cracks leading into the case. If there are you'll want to drill a hole or grind it to be sure it stops cracking further.
