What's up guys!

I haven't been on here in quite a while as I've been very busy... Long story long, I inadvertently started what I consider to be my true career- thanks to the massive collection of surplus GSXR parts I had accumulated. I started selling spares on eBay in my free time around 2016, did pretty well with it, and the next thing I know I'm leaving my job as a Yamaha master tech and going full time with the parts thing... Five years (and two shops) later, we are moving ~1500 used parts online yearly, and have a pretty busy service department, too. Crazy, TRULY never saw it coming!!! (And yes, for the record, my 6/11 project DID indeed finally get finished, just in time for the '21 riding season, only took me FOUR 1100W donor bikes til I had a setup I was happy with, LOL).

But enough backstory, that's not why I'm here. I let the smoke out of second gear towards the end of this past season and I've got to go in to the motor. Of course, I can never leave "good enough" alone, so while I'm in there I'll be going BIG bore. Not a little +1 or +2mm job, noo my sights are SET on a Superbike Mike (aka SBM) 1298cc billet jug. I know there's probably about 1.5 units in existence, but I'm determined... That's why I'm putting the feelers out early, I know it's going to be a challenge.

I'm also open to damaged ones. I have access to some good machinists and I'm not scared of a challenge. Hoping and praying there's one floating around on here!!! Or even just a hint on where to look/who to ask would be sooooo greatly appreciated!

Thank you guys in advance!

Safe riding.

Have you asked Superbike Mike?
I would love to, but from my understanding he's been out of the game for a long, long time no? What's my best bet for method of contact? The website seems to be long gone...

He's not in business anymore...hasn't been in years.
Your best bet, is to fanatically check eBay every day, post a Wanted ad on Psychobike etc.

It might be possible to locate him by searching the Florida business registration info. Is this him?
