    I have been able to get a complete engine for warranty in the past but normally you can not buy the engine assembly only. It's about a $9k purchase!

    If you take care of that engine it will go over 100K miles no sweat. Even if it's been ridden hard. Used engines are hard to come by and new ones are very expensive as Sean has already pointed out.

    I was looking for a low mileage engine for a few years because I was interested in building an engine and didn't want to break into mine. I finally found one but it came at a bad time for me financially so I passed, but turned it over to a friend who bought it. It was around $4K but was like brand new so that was a decent price at the time.

    So, unless you want to build a motor, I can't see buying a spare just to have it around. The one you have will last a long long time.
