WTB: 998R or 999R motor

Trying this again.

Looking to buy a preferably a low mileage 998R or 999R motor. I know it is a long shot.

I am on the west coast and can travel up and down the coast if the motor and price is right. I am will to travel a reasonable distance. Otherwise I will need to work out shipping. Please email what you have and what you are asking. Thanks

You might have better luck purchasing a good S engine. Almost as powerful as an R but much much cheaper to service.

I've owned several of each - 999S and R's. S bikes required adjustments to valve clearances at every service interval. The R bikes required only a few adjustments to the openers, which is simple to perform. A current owner of one of my R's was at 24K miles last time I spoke with him and the valves are still staying in spec. Performance wise, once you have an R, you will never go back to an S.
