For sale right now.

BRAND NEW RZ500 ENGINE

Dude is asking 5 grand. A rebuild costs well more.

http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/mpo/4794145167.html

Still would need intakes & carbs, electricals and pipes to use it. Plus all the seals would need replacement.

These engines are a pain in the ass. And they're really cool.

I don't know this guy, but I live nearby.

I think my engine is good, so not sure what I would do with it. I can't register that engine where I live (any more).

I could make a stand for it and keep it as a work of art like thing - but that would be blasphemy. On the other hand, it's been sealed in a crate for 30 years.

God damn it!

I was joking about the work of art like thing.

Now, I'm fucking considering it.

One correction - I didn't mention that the engine parts above include (4) YZ125 cylinders (the most important parts).


Contacted Sergio about the 7075 relay arms and suspension link. Waiting to hear.

Ready to go for grade 5 titanium relay arms. They look easy to make.

I'm no engineer- not sure which material is better.


Now have an RZV swingarm pivot bolt coming in. Very hard to find! Will measure for a one-off titanium bolt.

Does anyone around here make titanium bolts or other titanium parts?

Heard from the seller of the new 500 engine, and I remember him well from one of the 2-stroke sites.

I believe he's getting offers above what he's asking. So, probably won't take my lower offer.

You know - I could use another engine for this bike.

I'll post what happens with the engine.

I probably shouldn't say, but at this point - if I want the engine, I may have to outbid YAMAHA, Inc. and that ain't gonna happen!

I should hear something soon....

From the pics, it looks the the OEM relay arms are cast aluminum. If so then billet will be stronger.
