Unhappy 2008+ Engine Needed

Picked up a used 2017 KLR650 Camo and it evidently had a bent rod, which I then busted. $5K+ to fix engine. Looking for used engine to replace the one I got.

Did the previous owner Submarine it (Fall down in water) at full throttle and hydro-lock the engine? That is about the only way a rod could get bent.

Sorry for your loss. I'll suggest that you limit your search to 2010 & newer due to early Gen 2 issues.

there are a dozen or so on ebay; some vendors even have a video of the bike running before it was parted.
