Bid on a crashed 07/2012 Black Devil in a Queensland Auction. No headlight or dash and a stat write off, I assume because of cosmetic damage. $2,150 which I thought very good.

Hopefully it will have a roller top end and if it does I'll just slip the whole motive package into the green bike so I can go through my engine at my leisure. It'll even have the easy-pull clutch for my poor, feeble, arthritic hands! Bonus!

cheers

Good one Pete, if the engine/box is ok you have to be a winner.

That's the plan. From the pics it looks like it has been stuffed into the tray of a truck or some such as the major damage seems to be dash and headlight. Even the bodywork looks OK so I may be able to get myself a really vulgar paint job done. I'm thinking giraffe skin pattern maybe?

Great buy Pete.
Great to have a spare complete motor sitting there.

Wow - good price. If you go for a "big game" paint scheme beware of dentists from the States!

Sounds like a good deal, you could certainly customise it without feeling guilty!

Stat write-off can't be re-registered unfortunately, at least not in my jurisdiction. Pity, but there you go. There's plenty on it that looks salvageable though, I should be able to recoup most of the cost of purchase easily enough.

Good luck with your new machine, Pete, I'm sure you'll be able get it fit again.
BTW- I keep on hearing little whispers and sly comments about the colour of your GRiSO,
yet despite exhaustive research on the Ghetto I can find no pics of it. What's the deal?
Have they been banned as being offensive?

Nice grab Roper! I wonder if the PO was a member here in the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

For a point of reference, I purchased my 2012 in early October and it was one of the first 100 or so rollers as I recall. Though I don't know off-hand what the born-on date was.

Hopefully, you got lucky in that regard as it's likely right on the cusp either way...

It's no big deal either way, I have a roller kit and swapping the camboxes is no effort. It would be nice if its a roller engine though.

As far as I'm concerned though my overriding issue is how noisy my A5 motor remains, even after rollerisation. Whether the big ends have ovalised, (Which I suspect.) or it's just a bit of cam chain rattle and tensioner blade noise I really have no idea but the only way to find out is to go in and rip everything apart for a good measure and poke. Having another motive unit on hand means I can just swap the whole wretched lot and perform that surgery at my leisure.

Wayne picked my wrecked bike up and whipped the rocker cover off one side for me.

If you ever come across a new wrecked Stelvio, I would be very interested in the fuel tank.....




Just sayin'.

Good deal, Pete! Now you have no need for Pinko, which has not, and probably never will resurface.

Yeah, pity about Pinko. Never mind. I hope that whoever uses its engine has the tappets shit themselves lavishly and suddenly, preferably in Death Valley in August! Very Happy

Right on! Unfortunately I suspect it was scrapped. BTW, Jen got her Mazda RX7 back yesterday, missing both front quarter panels and other bits. What a shame. The fucking scrappers around here are ruthless!

Pete, now that I've had a tappet cover off an 8V, it would be a piece of piss to make head protectors.
Obviously in a really big hit everything would still get destroyed, but ........

1. A tube spacer in the 'O' ring and large flat washer then either;

a. Billet curved plate - that bolted down with longer button head bolts or,
b. Rolled 8mm alloy plate or,
c. Carbon cover moulded to all contours.
