In search of a complete engine!!

So the engine in my 2007 Boulevard C50 catastrophically failed, and it’s going to be more cost effective to replace it with a complete runner if possible. Anyone have any leads? Bike’s apart and in Medicine Hat Alberta Canada.

Here's a link to Ebay Canada. I did a search on VL800 engine and found a couple of hits that might help:

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/2004-Suzuki-...Rcv0lw&vxp=mtr

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/C50-Engine-C...pcnmkr&vxp=mtr

The engine is out of a 2004, which means your mechanic would need to swap over the charging system, ignition and good cylinder head from your current bike. The second link is to a 2005 cylinder head which your mechanic can use to replace the damaged front one.

I would strongly advise having your mechanic swap the timing chain and chain tensioner if you decide to go this route.

Good luck!
