Newb looking for advice on possible purchase of non running 750

Looking at possibly buying a 2001 750 with less than 10k on her and a clean title for $300..the kicker...seller says a gear went through the case. Just wondering what im looking at cost wise to fix it. Do I need a whole engine swap or can I just buy a case off ebay ? The way im looking at it I could always part out the bike for more than 300. Curious as to other more knowledgable opinions. Thanks ,Matt

That's the bottom of the motor. Would have to completely disassemble the motor to put in a new case.

I see a 2002. Can anyone tell me if the different years are compatible and if so, what years?

Some on eBay have free shipping. If not it'll show how much they charge

It's not hard.I took an 85 motor out of one frame and had it in an 86 frame in about six or seven hours running
