how to get rid of this RC

So my RC's motor is blown, and getting a new motor in has been nigh impossible.

Think there would be a market to sell this thing? It's got a lot of toys - sato lows, ohlins rear, scotts damper, magical racing front and rear fenders, etc.

I just want OUT!

Getting an engine should be easy, have you asked around here?

$850?








Really, part it out, or sell it cheap to let someone else part it out (to make it worth their while). You can go the replacement motor route as well if you want to keep it, but probably not worth the cost/trouble if you are just selling it.

Thanks for the low balls, you guys are so inspirational

I would part it but I don't have the space nor the time, I'd do the motor but I already dropped change ($1000+) on one and don't really feel like rolling the dice again.

Sorry dudes, my PM box was full, I didn't know parts were in such demand

I'm going to get pics of this beast tuesday at the latest - it's sitting at my buddy's shop so I don't have access to her at the moment...

Put it in the back of someones truck who you are good friends with (and can trust with your life) and push it out of the back at 55mph going down some country road and do an insurance claim on it.

What year is the RC??

I have a 01 motor sitting in the shop. Runs fine just needs the tranny overhauled.

If you buy the parts Id be willing to fix the tranny for ya. I'll even help ya swap the motors.

We can work something out.

I just wanted to thank you on the behalf of all of us @ speedzilla, and to our other listeners that ride sportbikes for high insurance rates....
that will be all

There is a market to sell anything, but you might not like the price it will go for.

#1 How to sell it quickly: Post up pics and a price.

#2 How to make as much of your money back: Part it out.

#3 How to sell it quickly and make most of your money back: Add #1 to #2.
