    I'm about to change the motor on my 07 Fz6. (Second gear was starting to slip.) I picked up a motor with only 1500 miles on it locally. It still has all the injectors and fuel rails etc so it should just be a plug and play swap? Any tips or pointers? anything to watch out for?:ear

    So, why was the "new" engine in the boneyard? Check out second gear on that also. Most likely your problem is a bent shift fork. We've replaced on a couple bikes, usually caused by power-shifting into second. We also have seen rounded engagement dogs from similar antics. Means replacing gears and maybe other parts.

    The other motor was there because it was a totalled bike, but the motor is fine. Just going the swap route, not going to tear these apart.
