I need a new engine for my 2018 ZX10R - pic attached should explain most of it.

Where do source a new engine for this?

Your best bet is eBay man. If there's nothing on there then you'll have to either contact Kawi directly or talk to someone at a dealer. I'm going to bet their around 4-5K new.

Ugh...ebay didn't have any for what I believe would be 2017 - 2018. I guess I will have to contact the one local junkyard I know or just keep an eye out as people wreck them.

It was crash related. I guess if I fixed up the somewhat minor damage I could try and play it off as a catastrophic engine failure, but I doubt it would work.

Oh! You can also check the local impound yards. When I went to get my Gen5 was a good looking 2015 Gen4. I asked about it and the owner said, "that's been sitting here for about 6-7 months unclaimed, it will probably go up for auction in a bit". Apparently they pick up stolen and salvaged bikes all the time, and I would imagine Cali impounds are LOADED with good stuff. Check there or check out some police auctions where the bikes are sold.

this stupid site, logs me out every few minutes....

so I'll post a short recap of a longer post

I don't know how it happened. I believe the engine didn't shutoff after the crash and ran "without" oil. I had a daytona 675 before this and I put 50K miles on it, but I have less than 2 years riding experience. When I got a full coverage quote, it was $4700 a year and I paid $11,500 out the door for this bike brand new

I had a feeling that's what happened. I still say warranty. The tip-over sensor should have prevented this.
