Default Possible to "Unsleeve" the 600

So I know that all the suzuki 600s are sleeved 750s.

I don't think I would do it, but I was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to take the sleeves out and just buy the 750 pistons.

No, not just a sleeved 750.

Hmm, from what I was reading, the motor in my 01 Kat was a sleeved 750. Am I wrong in thinking that, or are you saying that there's just a lot more to it than it being sleeved.

Basically yes it is a sleeved 750, but you won't be able to just resleeve the motor and toss in 750 pistons. From what I remember the 600 is a short stroke, the 750 is a long stroke. The head chambers are different sizes.

It's like saying the dinner table is just a trimmed tree.... so much more to it than that. Sure, the base block started out as the same block as used on the 750, but... everything done to it after that was to make significant changes that are not just simple reversible.

It would be much easier, cheaper, and better performance to just swap the engines.

That's my plan in the long run. I've been riding the 600 for 4 years, and eventually I'd like to pick up a bandit 1200 motor on put it in. I was just curious, thanks guys.
