Are there any salvage auctions in the Portland area. Has anyone personally attended one? I've read that it likely requires a licence. I'm looking for a low-miles (< 15,000) replacement motor for my KTM 950 Adventure. A 990 motor will also work. Later than 09 is tougher but I'll give it a try. Short of having a secret-santa who can find me one on eBay for $900 I figured a good option might be to purchase a salvage bike, part it out and keep the motor .... now to find said salvage bike. I posted a "Wanted" ad on CL and had someone contact me saying they'd just parted out a 4500 mile 990. I assumed it was a salvage bike but it turned out he bought fully working bikes from CL and parted them out. Apart from being a horrid thing to do to a working 990, I was amazed he could buy one cheap enough to make this financially viable. Sounded like he totally tore down the motor, so maybe. Any tips or suggestions?
