    SBT Rebuilt Motors

    Are they any good? My '98 GP800 recently chewed up a piston/cylinder and took out the crank, so I'm contemplating either rebuilding it with parts (possibly from cpgf927) or to just buy a rebuilt motor and drop it in and be done with since I'm not a mechanic and may not want to hassle with it.

    I've tried searching for SBT, but dang search doesn't allow me to search for 3 characters... I live in Seattle, WA area so I would most likely get the 2 year warranty to be safe... thoughts?

    I'm assuming I can't just drop in a 1200 into an existing GP800 without changing a bunch of other crap out though right?

    A lot of the Yamaha guys dont like SBT. I am a dealer and have used their Seadoo and Polaris engines and kits. You can not beat their warranty.

    Had a 98 800 chew up a piston and cylinder, crank was OK. I got a top end rebuild from SBT. Now that was 3 years ago and the ski is still running strong.
    The SBT motor will have new sleeves in the cylinders and ar NOT nikasil coated, keep that in mind.
