It looks a very complex engine with gearset on the side. It is going to be easier to find a complete engine and swap it. I would think maybe a gear selector has broken and allowing a gear to be moving around. If this went to a dealer for repair, i would think over 3000 pounds as the engine removal and rebuild would take at least 5 days. Engine is part of the structure but seems easy to unbolt after removing many other parts.
I will probably take on engine replacement as that is just a fitting job. I need to study the workshop manual a bit. Currently, there is an engine on ebay at 2k but the boy has not made a decision yet. I suspect the engine will sell quickly as it is 7000 miler.
Holding the bike upright while doing the work will need some sort of frame. Going to be some fun.
