1997 Yzf600

Just bought this bike from the neighbors kid he needed the money and I like the bike. Second gear goes in but kicks out under power(known issue with these bikes). I talked to my mechanic and he says it might be cheaper to buy another bike and keep this for a donor. I have found a few good deals on newer engines and was curious if anybody new if newer YZFR 600 engines will fit and if so how much work do I have to do to make a newer engine work. I am a diesel mechanic and this isn't my first bike. I am also a welder so I think I have the capabilities of swapping in a newer engine. Any info on this will be greatly appreciated and if I dont have to spend $2000.00 to fix it my wife will be happier. Thx

No way is it cheaper. There is a great writeup on YZF600R.com
