I am new here. I have a 2000 gp1200r, that the oil line came off the 3rd cylinder and ruined the engine (cylinder, piston, crank, upper crank case). I found someone selling a motor that came out of a 1999 1200 ltd. The original ski was totaled (am being told had 40-50 hours). The complete motor (engine, carbs, exhaust, everything)was pulled and has been sitting in storage for 5 years. The seller said he will let me pull the head and inspect the cylinders for corrosion. Do you think this is necessary, if yes, and I don't find any problems can I assume the bottom end is OK?

I will of course perform a compression test and look for 110-120 psi. Also to be clear the motor, carbs, exhaust is all connected like it is in the ski. My question is about possible problems because the engine has ben sitting so long

Yes hook the battery up the starter. I thought I would put a little oil on top of the piston and let it drain down the cylinders walls

I am planning on doing this before I buy.

No, I dont know. But when I pull the head maybe I would see corrosion in the water jackets of the cylinders. I doubt I will be be able to open the casings.
