Yeah, my first motor rotated and went through all the gears too and it had a spun rod bearing. If he guaranteed it ran then thats one thing, listing it for parts is another and ESPECIALLY when it comes down to PayPal disputes.

Now if you got 300-400 to blow and wont miss it, thats one thing. I dont. I gots to play safe.

Oh, you were talking about just the motor. I thought a whole bike. Sorry for the confusion. I'm blond, old, grumpy, single, available, filled with 1999 Vincent Arroyo Merlot and bowled a 577 tonight. Then measured the resistance of various plugs and plug caps.

Time to watch Family Guy reruns.

Another class of 1999 Merlot and I might make an offer on the motor. You can never have enough spare parts when you have 3 titled frames to make into GS500's. (I have no idea how I came on that many - really!)

Yeah, if it were the entire bike, you could part it out and make it back. But there is not much money in an engine being parted out unless its all a good engine and a good engine shouldnt get parted out!

Here's a funny one - I wonder how many people get suckered by this one:

"EBC Prolite Front Brake Rotor (Set of 2) 1989-2002 Suzuki GS500"

Duh - set of 2? and for $408?

Too true.  I'm surprised the price was not $0.01 and shipping was $500.

I asked if it was a joke and pointed out there is only one on a GS500.

They actually responded!

Top end gasket set (no side case gaskets in this set - just top end). I've used this brand. Prefer it over Athena.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/160921084875?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

Complete set - just a couple dollars more. And we all know that this set will fit all years, not just 89-94.

Never seen headlight guards like that...OK maybe, but not for a GS500.  More for a KLR/KLX/Beemer.

It would be. Plug the hole for the mechanical tach. Put in your timing rotor and timing pickup and you're ready.
Looks like that motor is missing the starter so move that over or ask me - I have a few on the shelf.
You would might need your present intake manifold boots, but I find the older ones fit new carbs. (Old carbs don't fit newer ones so you're OK).
It is one great deal. If no one bids on it, then I've contacted the seller to get it shipped to Seattle. I WILL NOT BID ON IT because I have plenty of parts but can't let this go out for parts & scrap because he can't sell it.

If you email the seller, mention GSTWINS and I think he will work with you on shipping.

Engines that guys wont ship and require personal pickup normally dont go to high because it eliminates a lot of potential bidders/buyers. If he was close to me I know I would bid on it simply for a backup

I have been in contact. He will ship to me.
Email him, ask about it and mention you saw it on gs twins.
Don't overbid as shipping is probably $150

Guy with the motor just put more of the bike up for bid. Forks, carbs, tank. You know I'll be watching for the end of the auctions and snatch up things with no bids.

Get the phuck outta here.

$1000 for an 09 that needs a $70 battery and looks like it already has a Yoshi on it?

Why is that still even on ebay?

Of course the seller gives like ZERO info about it. He might not even have a title. Mileage would be good to know and also to know even if it runs at all.

But still, $1k is good
