Engine and ECM is all you need. Gauge cluster if you want it to read the redline right. But, I've seen hand drawn gauge faces from 12k up that looked funny, but did the job. Ebay or maybe contact an engine builder directly. Also check out "powersports stuff". Andre Taylor is the man when it comes to finding parts.

Do it. Do it.
I would recommend doing an 01-03 GSX-R 1000 header swap, while you have the engine out.
I was able to find a gauge face from a 750, and swapped it out. So I still have my original speedo, and tach.

Yes thank you guys for the helpful info. Yeah im really wanting to do this swap this winter one off time.. as far as the gsxr 1000 header swap I had already done that with an 05 set with the crossover tube and used an 04 1k midpipe paired with that which i actually really loved but then crazy me found a great deal on a whole yoshi full titanium exhaust that came off an 01-02 750 which is what I have currently installed. I still have the 05 1k headers and midpipe from an 04

still and although I have the new yoshi sytem I can't seem to part with them because they are in such great shape and worked well.. man I want to just track down a decently priced engine so can get this started..few picsim adding are with my yoshi now and few from when my 1k setup was installed

The salvage places i know of are Bike Strippers, in Florida. And there is one in Vancouver Canada My friend has used for race bikes. When he gets back to me Ill update this post. Check with race orgs. around the country. For instance WMRRA is our race org. in Washington. Check out there forum, in the classifieds. Post a WTB ad on them. Racers have spare engines, ECU etc.

Try Powersports Stuff out of Kansas City. Andre is the man for parts.

Jmed, do yourself a favor and throw that K&N oil fiter away and put an OEM Suzuki filter on it before you wind up on your head somewhere.

Again thanks everyone for the help and yes TheGeek I will make sure and do that as soon as possible. I believe you had told me this before lol and although I planned to change the filter I just hadnt yet but will 100% make sure to stay away from these k&n filters for now on as I really don't want to end up on my head somewhere haha. I'm going to reach out to a few contacts you guys have listed and also post a few adds around in hopes of finding something decent. I did find a few engines but they were from 01-03 i believe and upon some research it shows I should stay with 04-05 as may have issue with one top motor mount not lining up idk for sure if this is true or not? also something about 04-05 750 making better power? Tjought about a 1k swap but thats more complicated I had heard and believe I would be happy with 750cc over my 600cc regardless.. I do all my own work to my bike and just believe this swap would be a fun project to keep me occupied during these long winter months up here in Northern Vermont.

600 and 750 for 2004 and 2005 used the same frame, so any combination works. For example, when I crashed my 2005 600 I replaced the frame with a 2004 750 frame.

The 04 was a completely new bike from the 03. the 03 is carbed, the 04 is fuel injected. Different frames and swingarm. And I believe the 03 750 was built on the 1000 platform ( frame and swingarm) so it is not as compatable with the 600s. Starting in 04, the 750s were made with the 600 frame and swingarm, so its all the same from 04 on. Stick with the 04/05 and you will have a nice fun time doing this.
