In search of a 88ci twin cam engine

The motor on my 2005 RG threw a rod and broke the case so now I need to find a replacement. Anyone have a spare 88ci laying around they want to sell?

Sorry, no motor to offer, only condolences. Looks very traumatic. That must have sprayed some oil. You made it through okay? What were the circumstances? Had her revved up to 7000 rpm? How may miles on her. I have one myself, just being nosy.

No motor here either, you may want to check on Ebay though. Just a tip for your search, if you can find a 2000 to 2002 88ci. engine it is a better choice since those years had the Timken crank bearings installed stock. Good luck.

There are a ton of them on eBay for around $1500, I even saw a high mileage one there for $795.

I had my Ultima 113 shipped to me from Missouri, and if I remember right, shipping was around $300, and it was shipped via freight, to the trucking company. I then went and picked it up. If I wanted it drop shipped to my house I think it was another $150.
