Yamaha RX1 Engine for sale

Postby dkshow » Fri Apr 20, 2018 1:42 pm

Hey all,

I have a Yamaha RX1 engine with 900 miles on it for sale. It started and ran perfectly last fall when I pulled it. It's crated and ready to ship to someone who wants an excellent carbureted RX1 for their Highlander or Superstol project. It's ready for a good cleaning and Teals adaptor, Steve Henry's engine mount and headers and you have an excellent inexpensive engine. $2500 + shipping ($300) roughly. I have pictures and a video of the engine starting and running.

The engine is currently located in NC. Feel free to call or email if you're interested.

Keith,
Does the engine come with an oil tank, wiring harness, computer, voltage regulator from the sled ? All these are necessary items for the conversion. The starter switch is also a plus. If all of these come with it I may be interested. Thanks!

Hey guys,

I was planning on putting it in a Superstol but then we didn't end up going that way so I did save all the parts. Oil tank all of the electrical, computer, etc. It took me a few days to pull it and crate it, so at least from my perspective, it's a great deal if you want to save the hassle of doing all that work yourself. It's ready to be cleaned up and make some airplane noises. The sled had only 900 miles on it and ran great so I think it'd make a good one for someone.

My ph number is 907-360-1281 if you need to get ahold of me. Call or text. I do have pictures of the removal process and a short video of the sled starting and running. The engine is currently in NC and can be shipped to where ever for a pretty reasonable price I would think.

Thanks Keith,
It is a great deal! I don't have a need for it right at the moment. But hope you can move it along.
