    Rebuilding a 96 XP motor

    I'm picking up a 96 xp with a seized motor. What is the cost or cheapest way to go about rebuilding this thing. I will want to have the crank rebuilt and either have the cylinders fixed or just buy a new set, depending on cost.

    Basically it started life as a super clean xp, the seller was approached by a friend that had the motor in his GTX seize (the motor now in the xp im buying). The seller swaped the motor from this xp into the friends GTX.

    Not at all familiar with the market for used motor parts for the 96 xp or how much stuff runs. Just looking for a little info.

    You can buy a Rotax reman long block for around $1100 if I remember right. All new parts, new sleeves, OEM stock bore. This would be my recommendation, as other cheaper builders use cheaper parts. And you get what you pay for.
