Ok, I need a brand new engine out of either a GSXR-1000 or an R1. It has to be a 2007, b/c both of those have the back torque limiting clutch(don't want to blow the motor b/c of a bad downshift). This is going in an open wheel road racing car, so I would also like the latest technology.
I am thinking about purchasing a new bike, riding the break in period(how important is that really), and then taking the motor and harness and selling everything else.
How much could I realistically expect to get for a perfect set of plastic, a good frame, good wheels/tires, etc.?
I have had bad experiences with buying junkyard/wrecked bike motors in the past, they have often come in terrible shape, even from low miles bikes.
I know this is my first post. Shanman sent me over here from Corvette Forum.
Thanks in advance for all of your help.
BTW- you guys have better smilies over here.
