    Engine weights?

    Hello all!

    Im in need of some weight figures of a jet ski engine, preferably the rotax 580/657 or similar, it doesnt have to be exact figures just a rough idea of how much one would weigh?

    Any help much appreciated

    Thanks

    Not sure But I say 75 to 100 lb depending what on it. Just the Engine core or magneto, carbs. pipe ,etc will make it weight more. It cost me around a $100 to ship both ways 5 years ago.Someone should known.

    Many thanks for your reply.. So your saying 75-100lb just for the engine alone without magneto, carbs, pipe ect?

    Does anyone have any sort of figures for any jet ski engine? No matter what cc? Just so i can get a rough idea..

    Reason why i ask is because ive got an old seadoo sp with a blown engine and the plan is to adapt a 4cycle motorbike engine into it, It seems that this sort of conversion has not been done before..

    Cooling the pipe will be The problem with a motor bike engine.The motor will get very hot under the seat. You will have to make some kind of water jacket for the pipe. That is why most people use a water craft type motor for cooling reason for the pipes. Someone wanted to put a snowmobile engine in a water craft and ran in to the same problem. Good luck with the project.

    Figure the ship weight in a crate or box and properly wrapped would be 100 pounds. With cards and extras add another 25, 150 or so with pipe and everything I would bet.
