My 2007 Yamaha GP1300R needs a new engine.
It just stopped while out on the water for no reason.
Had it tore down and I am told I need to buy a new engine.
There were no signs of overheating, the oil level was good and no signs of
sand, silt etc at all. I was told it just was a fluke and it doesn't usually happen. The parts are $6,700 and the labor is $600. I was told there are no rebuilt engines available.

This PWC has been winterized every year and is stored in a heated garage.
It has not been ridden very hard, just wave jumping.

What do I do? Fix it? I see some for sale for $6,200 and have a hard time looking at paying $7,300 to fix it. I also own a 2006 same model, so it is a year older and both have been ridden and maintained the same.

I need to decide soon as the mechanic is pressuring me to fix it while he has it apart. I wanted to wait until spring to have it fixed as I can't ride it until June anyway, but he says he might not remember how to put it back together and it would thus cost me more in labor then.

Please help! Rose in Red Wing, MN

Nope, have owned Yamaha PWC for 15 years and never had any trouble, so did not buy an extended warranty. I owned a VXR and then had a used GP1200 for 7 years. Now I am looking at having the engine rebuilt.
