My 07 WR had an oil leak that caused some major transmission problems and I'm wondering if I could just pick up a different motor for less than the rebuild would cost. Cant find ANY WR's on ebay, plently of YFZ motors but no WR's. Any suggestions on where i can find one or another motor that would be just as good with electric start?

I have good luck with craigslist and sometimes cycletrader. You'll find more parts bikes than just motors though.

Also, we have a couple motorcycle junk yards in MI that are gold mines. You might want to see if there are any within driving distance from your location.
