With practice is it easy enough to get the motorbike engine into neutral.
I also connected up the Neutral Indicator LED, which basically just works
via a simple switch on the gearbox, and it helps show me exactly if Im in
neutral or not.
As for the engine - its a bit pricey, although it does look very clean.
Its also going to cost $79 for shipping, so the total cost will be $380. I
would be more of the opinion of getting a very cheap, if not broken
motorbike engine and fixing it up!
The first motorbike engine I got: I had to buy the whole motorbike!! It
was worth it however, as I got to use loads of pieces off it, e.g. brakes,
rev clock, chain and sprockets etc.
It would be an idea to look for a crashed motorbike in your neighbourhood
Best of Luck,
