I'm willing to make an offer of £10 for it Johny.

The abundance of detail you've given me tempts me to bid higher but I thought I'd give other punters a chance.

If it's accepted then I can collect the engine next week.

Martyn

From the sounds of it, the engine needs a complete top end rebuild, sprag clutch, cam chain, rings at the very least...

Does the engine have an oil cooler?

Does the engine have a kickstart?

When was the sprag last changed?

Any damage to the starter gears?

What is the finish on the engine like?

Does the engine come with anything else like starter motor, inlet stub etc..

There is a real lack of info...

Woah, i wasn't having a go. It was meant to be constructive... the internet doesnt show emotion in text very well does it?

Its been nearly a year and noone has bitten, im just pointing out it could be better presented/informed and people might show an interest.

If you wanna email me some pictures im happy to put then up for you Johny.

malcolm i did not in any way think you was having a go at me i have tried to be as honest as i can with my first post yes the engine was burning oil probably stem seals / piston rings but it ran with no horrible noises i used it for a while then i got a chance of another engine which i knew was good i have put for sale on here for some one who wants to do a 350 conversion would be ideal i would have used it myself but my ttr has enough power for me off road i hardly use it i have many bikes too many to ride so it may be for sale if i dont use it it runs perfect you can only ride one bike at a time i am told by her indoors all the best pal get youself to the iom plenty of offroad over there i took mine last year with my gsf 1200 bandit and used both nobody bothers you off road not like over here i keep telling our ttr steve to get his arse in gear & get over maybe one year john
