    In all the world there is no place that makes / sells remanufactured / refurbished engines for a 2003 YZF-R1? I had come to that conclusion myself, that's why I paid you to find it for me. Please look a little harder. Sincerely thanks, John Duwe.

I have not ever seen much success as far as longevity for the money it costs on a rebuilt engine.Also,it sounds like you are capable of doing it and probably realize the time and headaches involved in a rebuild.I would think Yamaha would still have one of those somewhere being a 2003 but if not,your best bet would probably be to find a used/wrecked one with somewhat low mileage and the engine intact and just do the whole engine.It kind of sounds like maybe this was not the answer you want or have already considered it but like I said,this would be the most efficient,cost-effective and probably easiest way to go.I have rebuilt a couple car engines and they just don't last.I haven't rebuilt transmissions but when I blew one and compared the cost to a stick for a car,I have driven a stick ever since.People I know who have had their trannys rebuilt too,90% of the time kick themselves in the **** for not just spending a few extra hundred $ for replacing.Good luck and ride on!

There are no complete kits (let alone crate engines) - you will have to rebuild the engine yourself. You can find all the parts with exploded diagrams here

I need to rebuild my engine.


You're better off buying a 'crate' motor instead. Rebuilding an engine is seriously complicated, but dropping in a freshly rebuilt one is not that bad. You can also try the local junkyards, they often have complete engines for sale. The nice thing about crate motors is they usually come with a warranty, I doubt a junkyard motor would.
