New Guy Needs New Engine

Greetings to all Concours owners and riders! I am a "FNG" to this forum just right now, and look forward to getting acquainted with members here!

My purpose in cruising this forum is this: My best buddy of 44 years has a 2009 GTR1400--due to his advancing back-deterioration issues, he is regretfully hanging up his helmet... He has most generously offered me his clean, low-mileage 2009 GTR1400--FREE--with a catch... Several years ago, he installed an after-market turbo system, with which he managed to scatter some of the internals on the engine.

Rather than deal with rebuilding what may be a heavily stressed engine due to turbo boost, I am hoping to find an intact, bone-stock, lightly-used engine off a "crasher", or perhaps even a "crate" engine, if such a creature exists... At this juncture, I would prefer not to go to a Kawasaki dealer and get skinned at the parts counter; but I would certainly be most appreciative on any information or leads on how to connect with a fresh motor? I plead inexperience here, and am flying blind... My thanks in advance for any 411! Blessings! ~NCV~

There's one on Ebay right now

Trees are like magnets, if you look at one too hard you'll probably hit it.
I miss my 01, the silver was fastest!
08 close to silver as I could get!
