So my 1993 Indy 500 SKS EFI finally blew. I am pretty sure the crank is busted. Trying to decide if I should spend the money to rebuild the thing or just look for a different sled. It has been a great sled and a blast to ride. If I do rebuild it I'm thinking it should last me for a few more years hopefully. A rebuild would cost around $1000 but not sure if it is worth it since the value of the sled is around $1000. What would you guys do?

Ok so I found one on ebay for $650 that has just had a top end rebuild. It is out of a 1992 500 efi, the engine has a 30 day warranty, seems like the way to go I think.

OK, not to burst your bubble, but your sled is about $600-700 if it's in 90-100% condition. As it sits, it's about $3-400 in parts. A new motor isn't going to matter much.

Cut your losses and let the old girl rest in peace. Save your money and get a different sled. In this hobby, you have to know when to to cut your losses and move on. You can keep it on the trail for another 50 years if you want to keep putting money into it. Been there, done that.

Just an engine for $650? Holy. Find a cheap Indy 400-500 smashed sled with good motor and transplant it if you are going that route.

Save the $1000 and part your's out. With the money saved, you'll be getting into some nice sled from the later 90's that are 10x better than what you have. Wait til spring and find a 98 600 or something for a good price.
