Engine Replacement for Sachs Madass 125...NSW First time post - definitely not the last. Great community thats going here! And yes, I have a madass 125. Well. Had. Its been in my dealers shop for 8 weeks with a gearbox fault (2nd gear gone completely) which I now find out they don't want to honor my warranty for (due to the collapse of stoney creek powersports and all that...) - I am going to peruse this, & there's many a story to be told about that, but probably not right here right now. So. My options right now are 1. Get my dealer to replace the gear. $200 part, but they want to charge 5hrs @ $110 / hr. And there's no guarantee they won't find other damage in there due to the gear malfunction that requires a tonne of work. 2. Get my dealer to replace the whole motor. The new sachs distributer in melbourne has offered a full replacement motor pretty much at cost - and I'd just have to pay that plus 3 hours labour - which will prob come in less all up than the simple gear replacement. Still, I shouldn't be paying anything given its well within the warranty. Sorry...I digress. My 3rd option is to get a 3rd party engine (150/160) that fits the sachs fitted. I've read loads on the forums by people in other states (not nsw) doing it - particually some in my old home town of adelaide. But does anyone here know of a business in sydney that might like to take this project on? I'd love to do it, but have no workshop space at all now that I live inner city sydney (inner west). Its a small price to live walking distance from work though. So any advice appreciated. I'm certainly not going to get something like this done at my dealer, and since they are no longer honoring the warranty, I'm thinking this is the perfect time to perhaps do something like this. Thanks all. Cheers, Brendan.
