    Need help with 95 SP

    I have a friend that has a 1995 SP and he said he hears a clanking sound and the engine looses alot of power. He took it to the dealer and they said the engine bearing needs replacing and it would cost 1500 to fix it.

    Sounds like bunk to me but maybe I could be wrong. I don't know much about a 2 stroke except to add oil anyone know what this might be. If it's an engine bearing is it hard to replace ?

    This is a very easy engine to work on. My buddie and i have rebuilt a few.580s ,650s,and951s If i was him i would just geta rebuilt kit and install it very easy. and not that much. he will lets say spend 600 max and thats with heads being honed or even bored. It will be a nice project for u and him to work on. good luck i also know a good shop here in south florida if u want to get the parts from she will ship them to u.

    I feel since u will have it cracked open replace it all or at least the rings .

    Don't doo it.

    The price of x-4 800s is so low it will be cheaper to buy a running 800 than to rebuild a 580 with the same hull.

    For the dealer wanting 1500 , you can Buy an SBT (white 587) rebuilt motor for $699.00....exchange

    http://www.sbtontheweb.com/Merchant2...gory_Code=40-1



    No questions asked warranty and reasonable price. My wife's 1998 GTi has an SBT motor and runs great. Keep it stock also.
