rebuilding motors

so on my ride home my bike (07 gsxr 6) started cutting out i look down at my gauges and the low fuel light comes on, filled it up. same . come home start it up and internally sounds like . put it up on stands and dump the oil. has nothing but metal in it the oil was a straight gray color. when i first purchased the bike and dumped the oil there was several chrome flakes in it like a bearing or gear was going out. im fully capable of pulling the motor myself, with that said how much $ im i looking at to get this thing rebuilt? is it just better to get a good used motor? just out of curiousity can i stuff a 750 in a 600 frame?? thanks in advanced for your time

with the cost of labor, parts, etc, your cheapest route would be to find a used 600 motor, and just swap it. a 750 would require more than just the motor to work.

Yep...find another 600 engine and throw it in there.....

There are MANY 600 engines available....seeing as how 600 gixxers are usually "First bikes" and get wadded all the time.....No problem finding that engine..

I found myself in the same situation a couple of years ago. As others have stated, used motor is the route to go. It will cost you an arm and a leg to have the motor rebuilt. A used one will only cost you half an arm.

Part numbers are different, and I prefer to do things right, not just make them work. To each their own I guess.

Sometimes the P/N are changed from year to year. Almost everything swaps between the 600/750 of each generation. Believe me, I have put way too many of the GSXRs back together.

To the OP, there is an '08 600cc engine available on MRRF for $600...

I'm all about the 3/4 swap! You just need the motor and computer. Everything else lines up/fits perfect and will run perfect except you'll pick up about 25hp at the rear wheel = )


As far as rebuilding the old one? You need to open it up and see what broke. On mine the balancer bolts backed out of the crank. It cost me $30 for an Ebay gasket kit and $50 for a new headgasket and some case sealant and some new bolts for the balancer (gray silicone/yama-bond etc)
