Were are you located. You could have a really good builder close by for the motor

Little Rock, AR.  I just found a guy on FB, Bubba Ramsey out of Russellville, that does work on 250r's.

One last thing, Iím not wanting a big bore or 350cc engine.  Again just wanted a ďmintedĒ look and pics on *** website, coupled with the fact I could pay someone to exchange the engines, seemed like an easy route.  Iím an economics major...and my dad told me 100ís of times growing up. ďYouíd tear up a brass anvil!Ē  Now Iíve never seen one of those but according to my dad, Iíd tear it up if given the opportunity.

You should be able to get an engine on ebay or HERE that is a good engine and not need to go to ***.  You are taking a huge risk with ***.  they are extremely expensive and unreliable.

Welcome to the site. We will not steer you wrong.

Yea thatís what Iím wanting.  I would like maybe a larger cc like 265-275.  Do you have any idea a ballpark of what that would cost?  The reason I mentioned bdt was Bc it was basically what I wanted and knew the exact cost.  Again, I know very very little about the engines.

My motor is a 363 sphynx it was around $3500 if your looking for a 265 or so it would be quite a bit less to build Iím sure

Appreciate all of your input.  I drove up to see Bubba today at BHP and Iíve decided to let him build my engine.  Seemed like a cool guy who was down to earth, didnít bash any other guys and just showed me his work along with a list of clients.  Pretty much a straight shooter and I really liked him.

So Iím going to start taking my engine off and hope to get it delivered to him next week.

Glad to hear you liked bubba. It is nice to have the builder close to you. I use Pete with hybrid. It's nice just being able to load stuff up and take it to him
