Anyone happen to know the dry weight of a 650 Engine. I just crated up my 68' Bonnie engine with a big bore kit and I'm wondering about where I'm gonna be weight wise for shipping. Thanks!

Excellent! Hopefully my crate doesn't weigh more than 20 lbs. The difference between 150 lbs and 151 lbs is about $200! Thanks again!

I guess you could weigh it on your wife's bathroom scale while she is at work. You could pull primary side stuff off and send in another box if your package would be too heavy.

Back in the 70's I had a few engines around and was working on a lightweight street-trail (known as dual-sport today) for myself.
I weighed a 650 and a 500 unit Triumphs. Never forgot the numbers.
(amateur bathroom scale method)
(no carbs)
650cc = 139 lbs
500cc = 109 lbs

Means your crate needs to be light or separate some parts
Good luck


Stop the insanity.
