Where are you based and what needs doing to the engine?


There may be some people around your area that are able to help you out with it

Every ER5 engine will fit every ER5 . See my thread in Old Bikes Projects and Restorations entitled ER5 engine swap . I've actually still got my old engine sitting in my backyard if it's any use to you . One thing to remember when buying ER5 engines is that they cannot be made to change gear when they are not in a moving bike . Anything you want to know about the ER5 , let me know .

Gpz500 engines will fit as well

Kle500 also

 

The GPZ will fit but you're going to have a hard time fabricating a gear change mechanism . At least I think that's correct but I might be wrong .
