Freya will rise again!

Thanks to a tip from a user here (Thanks Juantanamera) I'll be buying an '03 engine with 25,000km on it from California AND having it installed by a lifetime Suzuki mechanic for a very good price.

After looking for engines on Ebay and going over the manual for removal/installation, I just felt that I'd rather buy the engine from someone I can trust, and installed by someone who has done it bunches of times and does it well.

So Freya will rise again. Front wheel first, of course...

Now it's bong time.

That's great to hear.

I know I'd rather have a seasoned pro do it than some schmuck like myself.

Best of luck,

Bong time indeed!
Having a pro do it is a very good idea.

Looking forward to hearing about the resurrection.

With the correct kind of "Oil" added to the gas one can suck on the exhaust just like a great big 1000cc bong.

Not actually recommended, but possible for a short while.
