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.

Thanks for the offer. I'm open to a 05-06 999S, but the priority is 998R, 999R then 999S.
