2007 Arctic Cat 650 H1 auto TBX HELP (need to find a Motor

Hello,

I've done some trading a few months ago and got a 2007 arctic cat 650 H1 TBX. well after having problem's with it starting and me having to adjust the exhaust valves a few times it was clear something was wrong. Put it in the shop and they said the oil pump was not getting oil to the top end and messed up cam. The bottom end is now not all that great, so they said I could probably by a rebuild cheaper than having this motor redone. I really like the bike but I'm not having any luck finding a motor. They have found one rebuilt for 3000.00 plus money for theme installing which is way more than I was expecting. Can anyone help with where I can find a new or rebuilt motor, or is there another motor that can replace the 650 H1 without any mods?

Thanks,

Troy

Try nFlow , they are listed in the vendor forum. Here's a suggestion when you get your new motor, put an oil pressure gauge on it. I just put one on my old AC 500 with almost 7,500 miles and noticed that when the oil gets hot, oil pressure at idle is pretty low, so I got a new pump, just have to put it on.

I ran on to a smashed 09 700H1 here in MN for $1200 BIN, but I see you are in Texas, not sure if the 700 engine would fit. It is actually on bids right now...top bid is $76.00. There isn't much left of it, looks like it fell off a trailer.

Are there any salvage places like this around there?

I would rebuild it. Get the service manual and you can do it yourself. If you were closer I would rebuild it for you much cheaper than $3k that's for darn sure.

Sanny651,

What would you call a fair price on a rebuilt motor are getting someone to rebuild mine? The shop I have it in claims it would cost way more for them to rebuild because of labor involved. I was hoping to have it back by October 1st for the start of deer season but I believe that's going to be a bust. I cant believe this motor is so hard to find and so expensive.

I rebuilt mine in less than 10 hours. That was once I got the engine out and on the bench. I did not know what I was doing. A trained mechanic on these Cat engines would be able to do it in a fraction of the time. It might Merit asking the shop how long it would take and the cost if you brought the engine and your self. The cost of Parts is the variable because you would only need to replace the parts that are damaged or need replacing. That part is unknown until you get into the engine. But the likelihood that you would need to replace every bearing, every year, and every internal component is pretty slim. I think to replace all the bearings was something like $400. You can find many gear sets on eBay for cheap as well.

$3000 is awfully steep in my opinion Unless they are assuming worst case scenario and every part needs replacing.

Let's hypothetically say that i could fix this for you (i cantcan't due to proximity) , I would estimated to be 10 hours of Labor just for the engine rebuild plus another 2 hours to get the ATV ready to pull the engine. Add another 4 hours to put everything back together plus parts. Again, that is me. I am not a master cat mechanic so they would be able to do it in a fraction of the time.

$3k for a rebuilt motor is high. You can get a 700 motor brand new from Arctic cat for around $2650. From the schematic that shows to include clutches and everything. You should be able to use the 650 or 700H1 motor. I've got a shop in AL and it would probably be around the $1700-2000 for what you're describing. You would want to check and make sure but if the new motor from Arctic Cat came complete it would allow you to sale whats left of yours which could get you a few hundred back.

Have you tried calling salvage yards for motorsports? You may find a motor with very low miles on it for a fraction of the cost of a rebuild
