used parts vs new parts???

so i broke the crank in my cbr along with the bearings and now gotta get the bottom end rebuilt. the guy working on it said its about 1800 in new oem parts after looking on ebay found all the parts i need for under 600.. so just curious to see if there really is a big differnce in going for a used part aisde from the fact that ones new and one is used....

The problem with making the purchase on eBay, is that you don't have the parts inhand to examine and scrutinize. I'll go ahead and say it's not a good idea, only because I have had people bring me parts bought from craigslist and eBay that were no good and could not be used.
If you can find the parts local then you can have the journals inspected by a tech and they can tell you yes or no.

engine internals are one thing you want to always go with new parts.

Id figure it'd be cheaper just to buy a complete motor.

both ways the bearings need to be matched properly(time consuming) and built properly.

W a new part you know you're getting quality. Its difficult to speculate accurately why the spare parts are available on ebay.
