Where's a good place to find an R6 motor?

Looking for an 03-04 motor but dont really know to look.


Has anybody ever bought one from Ebay? Any trackheads have a spare one laying around they wanna get rid of?

I haven't tore it down yet..... I'll get to it probably next Saturday or some time. All I know is I was riding, and I was definitely hard on the gas and next thing I know, i felt something pop in the engine and felt a grinding noise. My back wheel started to slip and slide due to oil. I grabbed the clutch and coasted smoothly to a stop. It was too dark to see where oil was coming out from but if i leaned the bike to the right side, oil would start spilling out. The bike wont even attempt to turn on. Blah.....

I have a 04 R6 with a salvage title that you can purchase for a fair price. Bike is in bad shape but the motor is fine.

But I was able to pull it in and even change the gears. I hope its just my clutch!! That would be bad .. I'll find out for sure next weekend when i strip it down.. I seriously think there is a hole in the bottom of my engine or on the right case cover cuz oil is definitely leaking from somewhere when tilted that direction. :eh:
