Full predator rebuild

Hi guys I have an 04 predator and it started burning oil and ended up getting run too low on oil. I found this out because I sent it to a private machanic and he checked with a scope camera in the bottom end and says the crank is ruined and not work rebuilding and that I should just find a new motor. Well I cannot find one anywhere. Has this ever happened to anyone and they just rebuilt the bottom end and things have been fine?

most places will charge $1500-2500 to redo your motor

you can get used ones off ebay for 1200-1500 all day long.

your young and have a Pred 500... Dam i wish i had one when i was a kid!!!

And if you keep looking you should find one in Canada. i seen them b4. (mine may be up there in the spring)

also there will be broker and Customs fees on the motor *if you buy from USA *(say you pay $1500.00 for a motor, you will pay ups $180.00 MORE in Taxes

Then after all that. hard to say how long it will last. i say bring it to your local polaris dealer and see how much they will charge you to redo your old motor.

check your valve clearances before you pull it apart. and write them down that way you can adjust them before you put cams back in. make sure you know how to set the timing on this motor or it will be junk before its running. 1 tooth will = bent valves. i would guess if you have all the parts there and ready to go you should be able to do it in about 8-10 hours tare down and back up and ready to go in the bike.
