    Blown gp 1200r engine

    I just blew a hole through the bottom end of my engine today. Any ideas what I should do. Rebuild or buy a SBT engine, or find one in classifieds. Anyone have one?

    I have more time than money. I just ripped the engine apart and the #3 cylinder bottom edge snapped off and destroyed the bottom end and #3 piston.

    Look here in the classifieds.
    With what you have listed you're going to spend at least $1500.
    If you're going to keep the ski for a while and/or mod it, fix what you have.
    If you plan on upgrading to a newer ski or keeping the motor stock think about swapping for a rebuilt motor.
    Plenty of experience here to help you either way.

    I am going to keep the ski. I had a Riva high compression head and a stinger exhaust already installed. I don't know which route I should go.
