Any guesstimate on cost (presuming no major parts required like the crank) of an engine rebuild? I have no idea about what it might cost so range maybe? Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks

The total cost for the engine

The total cost for the engine rebuild on my R69S was about $2000...that was about 11 years ago. I took everything apart down to the point that the rods were sticking out of the block...I delivered the engine to the mechanic myself. That cost was about $1000 in labor and $1000 in parts. Actually, the $1000 in parts includes work down by another mechanic for the heads...I have it listed as parts as I don't really know the breakdown between the labor and parts for the head work.

I spent just over $2500 for

I spent just over $2500 for my rebuild. But that was $100 book, $200 all in one tool, $400 for 2 pistons, $185 for rear main bearing, rear main bearing holder($ ?), $114 for front main bearing, cylinders bored 1st over,Valve seats done and one new exhaust valve, 2 tires, all the rubber on the bike. New cam bearings, new wheel frt/rear bearings. NO crank work done. I did all the work myself but the machine shop work.
So $1000-1500?
