yeh might be more but the engines are a lot newer and the parts for these engines will be around for a lot longer then a two-three year old model

The most current changes started with the NS/NSR/X12 models - 11.5 crankshaft, microcast, carb insert, etc. Other than the + series completely taking over, this engine will be fine. $50 for .04 HP and lesser piston life wasn't worth it - I just repeated what I said, but I think my point is made.

RCM does charge about $20-$25 for shipping an engine - basic 4-6 weeks.

All I ask is contribution...I paid average. Recommend a pipe.

Thanks.

I just found it on my 'stoop' a few minutes ago and its production year is 2006. Wow, I didn't know they still made them.
