That's the spirit. But do it before getting another motor, you may be able to fix the one you have and thus save some moolah.

Hey man, saw this and thought I'd pass it along to you. Good price most are over a grand. Not sure your ready but saw it and thought of your thread.

I'm interested in the same question, cause I'm searching for some salvage bike now (unfortunately I can't afford to buy a new one at the moment)and I came up with an auction selling water damages cars and motorcycles, so I was thinking that I could buy it really cheaply but the question is, how easy it is to repair it.

Well just read this thread. Plan on having to rebuild or replace the engine.

The bad part about those auctions are you have no idea how much water damage there was or how long it's been sitting. Probably a few months at least.

There was a guy on the Ducati 1199 forum with the same problem. i think all the exotic metals (magnesium etc etc) went into apoplexy with the saltwater.

Not sure of the final outcome. Worth a search.

But ... i have a feeling it was sad news

You can conduct an independent inspection of any vehicle from auto auctions which can be also done online, and then depending on the results decide if it makes sence to buy it or not.
