used motor question
there is a shop in town that has a 07 r1 sittin there for 3+ yrs now..guy came in and dropped it off cuz it wouldnt run anymore..after alil work found out it was motor related and guy didnt wanna pay the diangosis money or storage fee for well over a month of sitting.....owner comes and says she doesnt want the bike anymore ..the bike is financed and they came to get the bike but they didnt wanna pay the prorated charges on the bike...so bike sat 2 yrs longer....shop is gonna part out bike and im tryin to figure out the " legalities " of this procedure cuz its a bunch of nice parts for super cheap! ive been wanting the whole bike but now finding out he details of financing im alil weary....he is selling the fairing kit everything but the tank for 300ish minor scratches on 1 or 2 parts, and the motor w 3200 miles here WANTS 500 for....the motor is pretty clean compared to my motor w 60 k on it..lol...the only problem w the motor is something wierd goin on in the head area...motor is still intact but u can only turn by hand alil bit and then it binds up...as ilooked in the valves ports i noticed #4 cylinder was stuck open and all the otheres were closed ..and all exhaust valves looked closed...kida wierd....i intended to buy motor as another learning project..but maybe the motor isnt completely trashed..regaurdless tons of good parts in there...2 cams worth 500 easy..covers..starter...everything....but my question is whats the process of buying a used motor w the financing issue- but was left...and then what could b wrong w the motor? thinking of offering 400ish after solving legalities of this...
