New engine? 1985 1200

Does anyone know where I can find a rebuilt long block. Or even better a new engine.

They appear on eBay fairly regularly. There are also quite a few bike breaker places that will have them - check out the "Vendors" link at the top.

Unless...you're talking about a NEW new engine, and not just a new-to-you engine. In that case...good luck. :)

About the only way to get a new engine is to order it from the factory. But I don''t think you can get one any more. Buy the time you find what your looking for and the cost to get it to you, you could have one rebuilt.
EBay has some good deals on engines, but, only buy from someone that will offer you a warranty! And ask them all the questions!!!! If you have everything documented EBay will stand behind you 100% if the engine is not what they said it is. Good luck in finding what you want.

Hello
Believe it or not but I think the block IS still avable from Honda. But you will need the rest of the internal parts. crank rods pistons ect. As i believe stated before a used engine makes more sence for our older bikes.
