    Need a new engine

    Hi everyone, my engine blew its valve's last week, the engine is knackered bits of piston and valve everywhere, does any one have a 1000 v4 engine available or know where i can get one? or does any one want to buy a bike with a knackered engine?

    These guys can help me.
    Rico, I was just on the way to work, went to overtake a car and I could feel something wasn't right, pulled over and it stopped and wouldn't even turn over, no idea what caused it.

    Bike is nearly rebuilt, almost new engine (only 8 miles), I will be selling the bike when it returns as I can't afford a bike anymore

    I don't have confidence in its reliability, first the stator failed, then I had a problem with the exhaust valve servo, then the engine blew. if i get a payout I will trade it in for something Japanese I have my eye on a 2009 black Yamaha R1 crossplane crankshaft
