How to get a rotax, cheaper

according to mrrpm, the rotax 650 just needs some jugs,pistons and remapping to be a 800 or even 840,1004 c.c's
Finding a cheap 650 is much easier than an 800
so, there is is your tip o the day.

here is a link to where he says it.

Here's the key question.

Whats the cost to add larger jugs, pistons, etc. and remap it?

check it out, this is the guy with all the rotax stuff, he really knows these motors

I'm having john build it, but greg did my cylinders and I bought the 840 pistons and springs from him, everything else came from ron woods.
I'm also changing the stock clutch to a comet.
