    it seems my 2013 V-Raptor has major engine problems so I am considering a new/used engine for a total replacement
    so far I have been trying to buy a new engine online but all chinese sites ask a fortune for shipping (double than the price of the engine itself)
    anybody knows where I can get here in Europe a new or used engine ?
    Brand is LONCIN, 223 cc, air cooled, OHC 2 valves, but I believe it can also come out under different brands being basically the same model (LIFAN, ZONGSHEN, HARAY and so on)
    any help is welcome as my mechanic is pushing me to decide what to do
    I am in Naples, Italy

    Zongshen?

    If you need shipping then try biuro@tsfrigo.pl.
    I know they send 3,5t BUS with goods from Poland to Itally, i think you can try ask for a partial load, maybe it will be cheap enough.

    I work with them since 2010.

    thanx a lot but I looked at the engine in the pics and it has different exhaust connections...........the rest seems similar
    moreover I can't write or speak polish and make a complete search on that website
    searching the model 166FMM (the one I have on my bike) comes out the one you mentioned me in your message but, again, I cannot be sure it fits
    by the way, how much is 2700 zloty in euros ?

    Try to search for "silnik 250" or 250cc or klik on the proposals bottom. Maybe you find something that fits in your bike.
    Many of Polish people buy 125cc bike and fit a 250 in the frame, so you should find something.

    Allegro is a Polish eBay-like site.
    You can try on olx.pl too.

    If you find the engine in Poland i will try to help you in translate.

    4,2 PLN = 1 EUR


    You can also write or call langer

    http://www.skutery.tychy.pl/kontakt.html

    I know that he lived in USA for a while, he should know English. And he has a bike service so he can sell you an engine you need (he offers 125cc switch to 233cc).

    Write him, you have the link fron Beniamin from motocykle125.pl

    Good luck.

    thanx again
    I contacted your friend by mail few minutes ago, hope he can do something
    have to tell you, I don't want to send the Raptor to wrecking, it would be the second bike ending that way in a few years and it sounds SO AWFUL
    in the meantime I decided to buy the new SWM supermotard 500 from my same mechanic/seller cause I need to go round on 2 wheels and leave the damn car to my mum but it was agreed to try fixing the Raptor anyway, even if it will take a bit of time.................and if so, i'll likely keep it rather than sell it, it has cheap taxes and insurance

    thank you Adat but I know that site already, I bought parts from them too in the past, but they do not sell a complete entire engine
    just parts
    and the italian Skyteam dealer asked me 498 euros for a new engine plus shipping plus custom taxes..................no way
    my mechanic is spreading the voice to see if someone around town who works on chinese quads can find a new or used compatible engine
