Hi y'all I'm new here. I have a 1998 zx11 d6 Kawasaki with a bad engine. it has a spun rod but I found a Guy that rebuilds them and he has a 99 engine for $900 and was just wondering if I can put the 99 engine in my 98 frame or am I going to have to modify the frame? Also I have never swapped an engine before so any info on the job would be appreciated.:tard

Yeah I'm going to stick with an 11 unless I can find a 12 for a good deal. Are you talk about machining for the zx11 engine clearance or the 12?

Like Claude said you need to notch for the 12 . It too will bolt right in but when you adjust the valves you will have to lower or tilt it forward to get the valve cover off.

Oh OK got it! It would be sick to drop a 12 but I think I'll just put another 11 in.
