$4200 to rebuild my 954RR engine

Hello,

I just got my repair estimate from a certified Honda dealer here in Orlando. They want $4200.00 to rebuild my engine. The good news is I bought an extra 60 month full warranty on my bike from McGraw/Western insurance. I think they should cover the entire thing, but in case does anyone know where to get re-built 954RR engines?

Thanks,

Hal in O-Town, Florida.

Re: $4200 to rebuild my 954RR engine

not off the top of my head, easiest thing to do would be to take your engine to a shop that handles powersports they should give you a better deal then any honda house,

Re: $4200 to rebuild my 954RR engine

Thanks Atreyu. I think my service contact when in force can only deal with Certified Honda Repair facilities. But if they try to screw me I will look towards your option...

Re: $4200 to rebuild my 954RR engine

that was the " just in case they don't cover it" advice, or, again if they don't cover it, do it yourself, you'll learn alot by doing so

You can get a used motor for less than $1500.00...

Re: $4200 to rebuild my 954RR engine

Get a factory service manual and rebuild it yourself. Its only a small, four cylinder engine and one step at a time, is not particularly complicated.

But he has warranty insurance to cover the repair work.

I would see if the insurance will pay and let the Honda dealer fix it if you don't have to pay more than a few hundred out of your own pocket. Who cares how much it costs to fix...it's the insurance companies money LOL.

You would think Honda Japan would have some of these engines built and ready to ship just for situations like this. I would trust Japan's work more than some local tech who wasn't trained in Japan by the factory. But that is just my opinion.

Re: $4200 to rebuild my 954RR engine

Just my 0.02 but if I spend $4,500 to have someone rebuild my engine it better be a superbike engine with over 200+ hp. That seems way to high but if your plan covers it then let them pay for it and ride on.

Re: $4200 to rebuild my 954RR engine

For $4200 what exactly are they doing? If it's just a top end rebuild you could get it done for half that, easy.
