'99 R6 Engine Swap

1004 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Cole K
Well, my 99 R6's engine is toast. Been totally torn between buying a new engine, or just selling the bike for parts. I came across a very cheap engine off an '03. Basically, wondering if anyone has any idea if this would easily work? Or if I should just look for a 99-02 engine.

Its not that different. You can make anything work with a little bit of ingenuity. There is little demand for the engine you currently use, you can find them for the right price pretty often.
Unfortunately, the '03 engine I found isn't a direct bolt on, plus its FI vs carbs. It sounds like it would be a lot of work and money that I don't necessarily want to spend. Sucks because that engine is about half the price of everything else I've seen, but then adding in the costs of getting the frame fabbed up with new mounts, switching my existing electrical system, doesn't seem like that much money being saved.
