    Looking for engine rebuild

    Oh no, why of course, I bought a 2007 rxp supercharged and now I am in need of an engine overhaul. Wish I would've done my research. My 2008 rxp works great still Looking for a short block for the 2007, Any know where u can get the unavailable part or anywhere near ND/MN that would love to do a rebuild? Let me know. Thanks.

    Any dealer should be able to sell you a BRP reman engine.... I am not trying to start a shit storm of debate, but do not use SBT, their quality is not that good....

    Tiny knows what he is talking about. 47 hours over 4 years is hardly ridden.

    words of note here:

    "not that good"

    best bet would be an engine from a parted ski.

    I'd use SBT if I was going to sell the ski and offer up the warranty as enticement.

    Personally, I use a sliding labor scale for replacement of an SBT engine I installed that is being covered by an SBT warranty issue.

    If you are planning on keeping the ski and riding it a lot, then building a quality stock motor is the way I'd go. Keeping in mind the value of the ski along the way.

    You always run the risk of getting a welded engine case when you buy from SBT..and who wants that under your butt by choice?

    I just overhauled my first 4tec recently and it was pretty easy. I would guess any machine shop that does race quality builds could easily handle it for you. I'm about to pick up a freshly bored block to start my second one this week. It cost me an extra $100 cause the shop had never done a Rotax and had to build a holding fixture for me so they could bore it.
