Has anyone swapped a 98 to 2000 motor in a R1. I'm in the process and have noticed a few differences in the motors. The shifter linkage shaft is shorter in the 2000 motor, and there is more to the cooling system. I will post some pictures later.

I just did the same swap 3 months ago and everything swapped just fine other then the shift linkage and all I did there was turn around the shift bracket on the motor and it bolted up perfect.:rock

whether you go from 98-99 - 00-01 or vice versa, you need the wiring harness, motor, carbs, and speedo of the year you are going to.

So if you have a 98 and ur tryin to make it 01...You need the 00-01 harness, ecm, motor, carbs, and speedo.
