1500 SE Engine relacement

Postby Huntersbane » Mon May 19, 2014 7:43 am



Hi All

Well had the death rattle on 4th for some time now. But on Saturday, (going to Kirkbride Drove to Drink Rally from Southport) Lost 4th gear totally...

So its a replacement engine search, any one have any ideas, as to where i could get one fro a 1991 1500SE. I know there is one on e-bay but been stung off that a few times and £999 seems a big whack for a second hand engine.

I can't suggest anywhere, but have you considered a specialist gearbox refurbisher for a repair?

I see that you are clear over in the UK, but you might try www.steelescycle.com , they are a large motorcycle yard and they do ship world wide. Shipping $$$ will be the big hurdle. Good luck.


Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself. Our stress about it happens when the two aren't the same. Be true to yourself and to hell with what everyone else thinks!
