CAN Am 250 Engine Wanted for Rebuild

Post by Timtim » Fri Sep 09, 2016 2:02 pm

Dear Can Am lovers,

Do you have an engine I could purchase for rebuild? My bike which is regular use has a poorly engine and I would very much like to pop a fresh one in for next years adventures.

If anyone can a Cam Am can (well mostly, they can't climb trees).

Regards,

Tim (Bristol Area)

You will struggle to get a Can Am engine, but try my mate Tony who posts on here as Canam and he might be able to help. My advice though is get Minter to rebuild it like he did mine. Full powder coat and rebuild, I also got new piston kit from Paul at Military Can Am. My engine is mint and went into my full restoration. Pics on here if you search my posts.

Shiney, I have two complete canams in my back garden under canvas and both have engines. Dont think they have carbs, you can have one if you want it for a small donation to my Guinness club. Both bikes are in a fairly bad state as they have been outside for about 5 years, No idea of the condition of the engine but there if you want one. Ring Me.

Hi Tim

We love Can Am's almost as much as Rotax's - If it needs rebuilding we can do it as we have done quite a few now.. Click on the Sportax link below for more info and picures..

With respect I know this is a friendly forum but I think you are pushing it to expect someone to give you a motor to rebuild. They are worth a bit now that Rotax no longer support this engine.

The opening post asks if anyone has an engine for sale

To add my two penneth if I may; we've some engines in our 'for rebuild' stock. If the enquirer would like to call us (details on our minuscule website) we could discuss options ie how knackered you are prepared to accept etc.

At this time we might be able to offer an exchange bottom end assembly (I'm away for a few days so can't check until mid-week) - or with rebored barrel/new piston assembly. Not cheap but saves time if you don't actually want to do it yourself.

A less costly option might be to find a running bike and sell on the running gear, we are sometimes in the market for such.

As 350biker points out, Rotax have withdrawn support for the 244 engine and that leaves us with, in some instances, no option other than to have some of the more essential parts remade, these however then becomes even more expansive parts!

Regards to all.

Paul
