You should be able to rebuild it cheaper than replacing it. I rebuilt my 03 Honda Rancher engine for 800 bucks and I had to replace cylinder,piston, crankshaft, connecting rod, gaskets. I never rebuilt a ATV engine before. It was not that hard with the service manual. Just remember to take a lot of pics before and after you take casings apart. I had to take one thing to the dealership to press together for me but they didn't charge me cause it took them 20 seconds to do.

I was wondering what your engine is doing? if it is just running poorly it could just be out of time or the carburetor could be dirty. if it is smoking, knocking or making other noises something more serious could be going on. i agree with duaneduanet, rebuilding the old motor is the way to go. i rebuilt my 300ex with new cam, rockers, valve seals, piston, rings, wrist pin and gaskets for less than $500, where a select used motor would've cost me over $800.

I have a 2008 Honda Rincon that is great shape. We have always taken the best care of the engine. A weld underneath recently came undone and bent the frame. We do not drive it hard at all and it was a fluke thing. The engine is in great shape and we might be parting out the whole thing. If you are interested you can email @ [email protected]

I have to agree with the rebuild route, unless your motor has completely grenaded rebuilding is going to be the cheapest way to go. If you do decide to go with the engine above, remember that your 05 is a carb motor and the 08 is fuel injected, it want be just a straight swap.

His best bet would probably be to buy the whole machine and swap everything off of the 2008 onto the 2005 frame.

Tyler, I agree with DC. Your best best is to find a used Rincon 650 with low mileage on it. You'll not only have an engine and tranny, but lots of spare parts. Check on Ebay motors. Also check with a Honda dealer near you. Sometimes they'll get machines that have been wrecked that they have parted out. Good luck sir!
