BETWEEN A 600 TRIPLE AND A 700 TRIPLE

Well I would compare the two sleds to each other. Check suspension upgrades from 97 to 99, any mods on the sleds, and reliability. I've heard through the grape vine that the 700's have had some trouble, but I bon't know if that applies to those years. and last but not least COST. Is this really worth the swap or not?

OK, well, as far as power goes, (Freezurburnt correct me if I am wrong here) the difference between those two mills is only about 10-13HP, which I would think is not enough difference to motivate me to swap a motor. And also isn't that 99 the one with the pipes that go over the top? Don't know about technology, still same case reed induction. And yes, as far as the cost goes, is it really worth it? I don't think that is a trade I would make. You are probably better off with staying with what you have right now. Also I think the newer F3 has a version newer of their SC-10 than the 97 does. Freez needs to verify this however. That's my .02.

Kick ass!

my advice, i wouldnt make the swap, your just making countless hours into work that isnt going to do much whether or not the newer motor is worth more a buyer isnt going to pay more for the sled, i would just stay with the motor you have unless its going really bad and you want to get rid of it before she blows, myself i wouldnt buy a triple, twins are much better, they last much longer, they are quicker and lighter

BETWEEN A 600 TRIPLE AND A 700 TRIPLE

Postby 97Mach1 » October 14th, 2003, 7:36 am

The 97 700 was the problem child with the missing oil hole in the crank case. The '99 triple motors have been pretty much problem free. I did a swap in my 1997 Mach 1 700 that I roasted. I found a 1999 F III 700 motor. I just re-used my carbs, clutches, pipes, and electronics. The only real difference in the motor was the water pump outlet. The 1997 output was straight forward, where the 1999 outlet was straight down. I had to use a series of bends to get it to work, but it has been fine for the last 2 years and 3000 miles.

The electronics changed between the two years, so you'll either have to re-use ALL of yours, or use ALL of the 1999 electronics. You'll have a calibration change from the 700 to 600 cc, so if you can get the carbs & clutches from the 1999 that will save you a little work. Otherwise just change jets & the springs, weights and helix. The pipes should be interchangeable, and you'll need your mounting plate from your 1997 engine.

There wasn't any technological changes between the 1997-1999 triples. The chassis, exhaust, & suspension changed, but the engines, clutches, & carbs were all the same. Doo just made some small tweaks in 1998 and 1999 to the engines.

If you decide to do the swap, let me know if you need any help..

There was no 97 FIII 700,only FIII 700s were 98-00

Could this be a 97 Mach 1??

Why would he want a 600 inplace of a 700?

The 98-99 FIII 600 pipes are diferent from the other 2 Triple triples btw

The 97 FIII 600 and Mach 1 700 had the same pipes

I know a buddy of mine swapped a 99 MachZ 800 engine into his 96 FIII 600

But why go to a smaller engine:R

Now if you wnat to get a 700 into your 99 FIII 600 you are going to need Mach 1 pipes or MachZ pipes as the 600 pipes are diferent or keep the single pipe from the FIII 700
