Thread: SBT engine
06-26-2009, 08:37 AM #1
Has anyone bought an engine from SBT? I am looking at replacing my engine due to a burnt piston and not knowing much of the history of the bike. I am looking at replacing the whole damn thing and wanted to replace other things that will allow the bike to run brand new. These are the things that I was planning on replacing, do let me know if there are any other things that I should replace.
(1) SBT short block
(2) Carbs rebuild kit
(3) Thermostat/ Thermosensor
(4) Engine mounts
(6) Fuel lines to be cleaned out
(7) Fuel Pump - Do you think that I really need to change the pump if I have a block off kit
The problem I had with the old engine seems to have been over heating. What do you think had caused that?; plus there was no gap at all in the spark plug along with a burnt dismantled piston.
Another question: How should I break in the engine so that it becomes the fastest that it can be?

I bought a GP1200 last yr with an SBT engine in it. Owner before me ran it about 3 hrs to break it in and then I bought it. I have about 10 hrs onit now and it runs great. I got it with the break in oil still in the tank and it did about 50 no with normal premix it goes about 65.
