    Does SBT buy engines?

    Hello,

    Does SBT buy engines? I have (2) complete Kawasaki 650's.

    Thanks,

    Mike,

    They do, but are only interested in shortblocks, and pay core price (not much).

    I doubt they would be interested in 650 Kawis motors as they probably have a bunch already.

    They need to offer some kind of incentive plan for the 2 stroke platforms to keep inventory rotating and the older skis alive longer. With the volume and resources they have they could be a little more cost effective. I'm sure this has been in a discussion table a few times on meeting days in Clearwater. I spent $495 on a cylinder exchange kit $680 with shipping. To me imo should include shipping and about $50 less on the "kit" itself . I understand Tooling,Payroll cost etc but it's the volume they have over other smaller company's.

    I found this interesting.... http://www.shopsbt.com/pdfs/2014repcharges.pdf Title says 2016 ... look at what the charge for individual "core" pieces. I have a bare case here for a YAM 1200 NPV perfect condition .... going by their list the value of it is $600 ..... Would be nice if they take parts like that in exchange for store credit ..

    I've pretty much stopped saving cores for them unless they are completely stuck solid and useless, if they aren't i'm better off taking off the parts that are usable and selling them off.

    The problem with normal is that it just keeps getting worse...

    I would rather sit than quit...

    I have a 65U case collecting dust and want to sell it to be able to buy more parts for my Yamaha SUV. What are the cases worth ?
