I was looking into buying this 998 monoposto, dealer told me that the engine blew a seal, due to the testastretta engine's lack of a bypass hole that was not drilled at the factory. This was corrected under warranty, and had no problems ever since. The original owner got a new bike as the result of that "blown seal", as protected by the lemon law. Now the bike is for sale, but don't know, 1st: If this is true or not; 2nd: If so, then, should I pass this bike?
I'm test riding tomorrow, bike looks great, 4100 miles showing, they want 11.8k for it, but it's all negotiable.
What's your take on this? Advice??
Thanks in advance....

First it depends on how much the bike is.


Second, who put together? I would rather have a motor set up by one of my guys than a stone stock factory one.

For example, we had a 749R spin a rod bearing at 140 miles. We went through the entire motor, part by part, peice, by peice, degreed the cams, set up the heads, etc. And that bad boy RUNS!
