I need my engine swapped! Pls help!!

Ok, so I plan on picking up a used engine from a salvage yard. I have called Javi about taking up the task of doing the swap but didn't really get a direct or estimate of a quote. How much should something like this run? I plan on getting the engine from Romeo's place of business. I was quoted about 1250 with the exchange of my old engine. Is this a hard task to do, as I dont have the tools or equipment to handle such a task. What do you think is a decent price to do such a job? I don't want to get raped on prices but I do want quality work done and in a timely fashion. It's been about a year or so since I've been riding and I don't want to jump into the wrong hands or pay a ridiculous price for the job. Does anyone have any recommendations or know anyone who has the tools and is up to the task for some extra cash flow?

Patrick can you chime in or any of our sponsors? Please PM me with an estimate!! I plan on picking up the engine from (Romeo) sams salvage yard.

Any help or advice is appreciated!!

lots of em






should be easy enough to do. how much is the motor, or rather, how much of the 1200 is labor?
it could be done in an afternoon with some vittles, beer and a few friends.
