I was thinking of getting 525 after i sold my blade. How much would it be for a complete engine rebuild? ive had a look round & there are some 525's with no service history & its a bit worrying. I'm thinking it aint going to cheap but is it thousands or hundreds

2nd hand running engine is anything from £750 upwards

Rebuild is all dependant on what failed and what it took out when it failed.

Price wise worst case what if the engine was absolutely chuffed what would you be looking at ball park

hmmmm

hard one really.

could cost more that a grand if it was really really bad, but could be a few ££ in parts if its something simple.

Engines are a bit too complex to just say a rebuild will cost X amount :frown:

mine is a 450.

That engine that was at FF has gone south. The Crankcases cracked :frown:

Bought a spare engine, which decided to split an oil line sending me down the road at FF10.5

Ah the joy of KTM's :D
