    Just bought a 03 GTI 720

    Just picked up a 03 GTI 720.

    Bought it cheap 500.00
    75 hours on it
    CLEAN.

    Said the motor was seized. But once i got it and pulled plugs it turned over FINE, just was full of oil. Im assuming the oil seals for rotary are shot!

    Should i pull out the motor check the crank seals, see if i can seal them back up?

    Buy new crank?

    TUrn it over till oil comes out and get her running?

    Being that you got it so cheap I would pull the motor out and check everything over who knows what happened to the machine. Is it milkey oil or is water coming out of the block after pulling the plugs?

    Congrats, good deal! but I would open it up, check to make sure the bearings are not rusted; or you could take a chance and have some fun

    She was filled with OIL not water Everything was over lubed

    I ran it on the hose for 10 minutes break, waited an hour ran for 10 min. Running great!

    I checked compression and she blew a 142 on both cylinders on the money

    Starts right up no choke!




    I should of taken a before picture. Looked HORRIBLE!

    I dont think the guy cared about money,

    He had a bently, viper, porshe, two escalades. And his house was like a masion!

    He had his OWN boat launch in his back yard

    Ha! you got a great deal! CONGRATS! Are the 720's the bulletproof motors like the Kawi 650's? Not too powerfull but a lot of fun and just keep going year after year like the energizer bunny? or is that another motor?
