Engine stopped on the highway several weeks ago while having simultaneous problems with the right hand control switches. After towing home I started it up and it sounded terrible but I was hoping it had a problem with the chain tensioner breaking or something that would explain the sounds I was hearing from the engine. Shop got it today and pronounced it dead. They did not do any work but said that there is something wrong in the bottom end, maybe something with the rods. I got the bike for 500 dollars and its a salvage title so I don't think I want to spend anything to repair it.

Is there much to salvage off the bike? I don't know whether parting it out is worthwhile. I have read about engine swaps but never performed one. Mostly just bummed as I really enjoy this bike.

Member XDM might like the rear brake caliper. See "stripped the screw for the brake caliper pin, how do I proceed" topic.

There may be others in the USA in need of spares.

If you are not going to fix it I’d part it out  if you don’t mined packing and shipping  swing parts don’t last long especially if the prices are low to mid if you are good at posting pictures you can do it here☝🏾give us Swing guys first dibs🙂
