    2005 GP1300R Needs a New Engine.....Help

    I got some bad news today. Before the holidays my dealer told me that I had 140psi on two pistons and 0 on one. He told me that a fuel injector leaned out #3 cyclinder. They quoted me two estimates....1. using all yamaha parts $6000.....2. buying a rebuilt $4000....installed. Am I wrong to think these estimates are high?? I really don't think the ski is worth fixing at these prices. If I am going to fix it, I want to work the engine for that price. The ski is in perfect shape and always been garaged.


    Any help would be appreciated......

    If you want the prices to be cheaper, you will have to do the work yourself or at least know someone who can. Businesses are there to make money and some of that quote is profit. You will have to find what really caused the failure and taking it apart to see the clues will help. The cheaper way is to find a used cylinder and piston. Check the head and see how the dome looks. If bad with metal in the head, then find a good used one. Check the crank, but might as well say that too. Could go SBT, but that is a risk in that they are not the best. Maybe find a used engine from someone you know or trust. No reason you can't at least try another remanufacturer with more credibility and do the swap yourself. Could cut that 4k bill in half maybe.

    I would say the prices are somewhat high. Redid mine all new parts only was 1500. If supply your own labor its all there. I bet you could get it back together for the same price as the parts or less. How about some pics of the pistons and cylinders you really want to make sure that it really was an injector before you put a lot of money into to it and then have it go again. Too much frustration and money. Ask me how I know.

    That is insanely high. How many hours are on the engine? If cylinder 1 & 2 are fine and you just need crank, pistons and rings and only one cylinder needs to get re-plated you save some money. If you have under 100 hours you could even get away with using the same crank as long as it was cleaned and inspected. Where did that estimate come from? I live in Bridgewater.

    Check your PM's
