Anyone out there know the weight of a R50 motor with both cylinder heads on, but excluding the gearbox?

Want to get shipping estimates before I remove it to see if its worth my while.

Can't seem to find anything

Can't seem to find anything like that right away. I do have info that a /7 engine weights around 140 pounds, but that includes an electric starter. My guess is the R50 is going to be around 100 pounds...just a WAG.

Vech would know...maybe drop them an email??

Its about 42 kilo with the heads off (no gearbox) so I guess about 50 kilo with the heads on -

I'm Pretty Sure

I'm pretty sure right around 100 pounds, maybe a bit more. 50 Kilos is pretty close.
