Rebuild - Starting at $400.00 plus parts
After getting many request of "can't I just send this thing to you guys and you
rebuild it?" we have decided to officially offer our engine rebuild service.
All rebuilds will be carried out by our experienced mechanic Matt Martin. Matt
is the same person who does our stator re-wires. Many of you have spoken to Matt
for technical advice on the phone. Matt has rebuilt hundreds of engines. Email
us for references.
We have laid out the following steps to make sure that they are no surprises and
your engine rebuild costs the least amount possible.
1. The first step is to send us pictures of your scooter and your engine. Email pics to Matt (click
here) . We do not rebuild Vietnam engines or widebody engines. It's
really important that you send us pics first, don't just send in your engine
without communicating with us.
2. Once you get confirmation from Matt that we can rebuild your engine,
pack up your engine to ship to us. Please follow our "how to pack an engine for shipping" guide.
3. We have a very good shipping rates and will share them with you. If you
want us to email you a shipping label, purchase the following item ENGINE INBOUND SHIPPING. The costs is $50.00. Once the order is processed we will
email you a shipping label. Of course you are welcome to take your engine to
FedEx, UPS or hand deliver to us. Here are some sample rates for 24 x 24 x 24
box weighing 90lbs using our shipping label.
Washington DC $43.50
New York City $47.50
Salt Lake City $61.50
Los Angelos $63.50
San Francisco $63.50
We checked the San Francisco rate and its $102.00 if you take it to the counter
at Fedex office and pay for it yourself.
The actual shipping costs will be put on the final invoice and the initial
$50.00 payment will be applied to the final invoice
Please include the following form with the engine: ENGINE REBUILD FORM
4. Once we have your engine we will dis-assemble it and assess any issues
with the engine or any major part that we think is out of spec. This takes approximately 2 hours.
5. Using the ENGINE REBUILD FORM and the information gathered from the
dis-assembly / inspection, we will create an estimate for your engine rebuild.
Every engine gets a minimum of one of our engine rebuild kits. Labor is:
$350 (bench tested)
$410 (road tested)
$470 (porting and road testing)
We will email you the estimate for your approval. No work will commence without
an approved estimate. If for some reason you do not wish to go forward with the
rebuild (could be your engine needs new cases or transmission) you will be
charged $120 for the dis-assembly / inspection and return shipping.
6. With an approved estimate, the engine rebuild can then begin. Your engine
will be completely cleaned and then rebuilt to factory specs or with the
modifications that you specified. Every engine will be bench tested or road
7. Upon completion we will safely pack your engine for shipping and
calculate the return shipping. A final invoice will be created, and upon
complete payment the engine will be shipped back to you.
