    Any thoughts on SBT

    Has anyone ever dealt with this company?

    http://www.sbtontheweb.com

    I am looking to order a rebuilt engine from them and I wanted to see if anyone has ever ordered from them. Your experience or thoughts would be appreciated.

    Yes. I have a thought. Don't use them.

    I am sorry I don't have an alternative for you though. I know it sounds bad for me to bash SBT and offer no alternative but turst me on this. Just find another alternative.

    I went through THREE rebuilt SBT engines in my old GP1200. The most I EVER got out of them was around 50-75 hours before they popped. It's just not worth it. I gave up on my old 1200 and went 4-stroke so I never had the chance to find an alternative. Do a search on here and I'm sure you'll find similar opinions.

    Yea I just didn't feel like rebuilding the entire thing myself. Unfortunately its not that simple. This engine broke a connecting rod, which basically punched a hole in the bottom part of the block. I don't believe that this part is fixable. I would have to order another unless I can find a used one in descent shape.

    There has to be someone else who sales rebuild engines.... dont you guys think?
