2000 Monster 750

Long story short, I have a fairly nice monster except for the damage to the drive train...ie. the front sprocket and internal bearings. Advanced Motorsports, www.AdvancedMotorsports.com, quoted me ~3500 to fix. ~$2700 is labor. That leaves $800.00 for parts.
I am stuck with 3 options:

1- If I do the work, which I believe I can (at this point what do I have to lose), but dont really have the time, It will cost me ~$1000.00 for parts and any thing else I might need.

2. Sell the bike to someone who is wanting a fairly straight forward project.

3. part it out and see what I can get.

Just looking for any advice or ideas.

4. look for a used 750 engine.

5. spend a little more and look for a used 900 engine.


Sorry for adding two more choices. From the price on AMS's estimate I would assume labor is so high because they need to split the cases. It may be a good idea to speak to them about repairing it yourself and perhaps looking in a manual to get an idea if you have the skills, tools, space and time to do it yourself.

I'm replacing my 750 engine this winter, you could buy it from me at a fair price. Just needs a head gasket.

Justin

I should clarify: The head gasket on the vertical cylinder leaks a little oil. Both cylinders have full compression and the motor still runs like a top. 13k miles on it right now, It might catch a few hundred more.

Option 4 sounds really good, as does #5. I guess I was just being pessimistic. As for using a 900, is it a like for like swap. Does the enigne year or model matter?

Thanks
