Complete Engine wanted

Postby AussieRob2001 » Sun Oct 23, 2016 1:23 pm

Hi, anyone with an engine yet -?

G'day everyone...
I'm in need of a replacement GTS 1000 engine.....
Does Anyone have one under a bed or in a shed somewhere?
Cheers Rob

As far as I am aware the FZR1000 of the same year is a straight shoe in.

Look at this thread to see what the problems would be, looks more difficult than thought.

See previous comments - FZR1000 engine would also require FZR1000 ignition, carbs, exhaust, etc., plus various external fixtures and fittings from GTS engine. OP does not have a GTS engine and if he did, he would not need an FZR engine.

I think you're looking for a needle in a haystack, and you might have to bite the bullet and pay a small fortune to have one imported.
This one looks decent, but of course you won't know for sure till it's running.
It's been on ebay for quite some time, so it might be worth putting in an offer.
I think all in, it would still be a hell of a lot less hassle and cost than trying to fit an FZR lump in there.

The seller is open to offers, so as t's been on ebay for quite some time, you might get a bargain, even with import costs.
