Blew My Engine :( :(

Am looking a cheap 2007/2008 engine , checking ebay am seeing prices like $1k+
I just rebuilded my bike in November after a major crash , brand new fairings and a TON of mods , am not looking to spend alot on a engine, right now :( still cant believe i blew my motor

Is it possible to find good engines under $600 incl. shipping ?
If someone knows where i can find one , please hook me up or point me in the right direction

You're not going to get a good engine for 600 dollars delivered. That would be like 400 plus shipping.


It's going to cost you around a grand for a decent engine (higher miles, scuffed cases) And well over a grand for a good one.

In high number motorcycle state/s, you’ll come up with great deal once in a while. I got an engine off a crashed bike for $500 with title (subframe, swingarm, radiator and engine are good everything else trashed) So yeah, deals are out there but you’d have to constantly look on local cl or local forum.

I had what is called "engine knock"
After I pulled the drain plug about 1 quart of very very black oil with some silver shavings came out.

Wish you the best of luck buddy. A will also agree with others saying to check locally on a consistent basis. Don't rush it and I'm sure you'll be able to come up with something between now and summer.

At this point; you've got to ask are you willing to risk another blown motor? I know your hurting after spending so much already, but if your intent is to repair your bike, spend the money and get a new engine. You'll get peace of mind knowing that it's coming straight from the factory and should come with a warranty as well.
