SV650 Engine in a 2004 DL650

Found plenty of discussions on similarities and differences between the two engines, but…

Has anyone put an SV650 engine in a DL650? What are the highlights of your experience?

My Wee Strom has 76k miles on it and this week something went wrong…Now it won’t shift into 3rd gear - I only have 1st and 2nd gears. Haven’t split the cases yet, but drained the oil and there was quite a bit of ground up metal stuck to the drain plug magnet.

Trying to decide whether it’s better to fix the engine or replace it. Used SV engines are far more plentiful than DL650 engines.

I’m not looking for another thread on whether it should fit or not – I’m looking to hear from someone who’s actually done it.
