How do I ship an engine, and what are the costs??

It is difficult to estimate the cost for a rebuild without having looked at the engine. our labor is:

YSR tear down, and re-assemble=$155

Derbi tear down, and re-assemble=$175
Boring if necessary=$55
YSR porting if desired=$135, Derbi porting=$155

Those are the labor charges. As far as parts are concerned it is totally dependant on what is needed. We only replace as necessary, or if thecustomer requests.

When we receive an engine, we dis-assemble (usually same day as received) then call the customer with a complete and exact estimate of repair. Any other work that the customer desires, i.e., carb kit, porting, etc., is added as appropriate.

Turn around time for a compete engine rebuild is about 3-4 days. We generally have all parts in stock.

Our techs have a combined experience of over 100 years in the m.c. industry and treat each engine as if it were their own.

We are very proud of our work, and we know YSR's and Derbi's better than anyone.

As far as shipping is concerned, please drain the oil, then crunch up a bunch of newspapers and place around the engine in a cardboard box. Use lots of newspaper and pad well.

Ship via UPS or U. S. Postal Service which has better rates than ups, around $25 coast to coast.
