Yikes!....sounds complicated. Can't really help other than to say yes, the 650 engine will fit just fine, they only differ internally....stroke is longer hence the extra 47cc.
If your going to do it "right", the way to do it is new cylinders, pistons and rings (you probable could keep the pistons) and have the head gone over/cleaned up. I know I'm leaving out some stuff (bearings, pins etc) but you get the idea.
The cylinders do come out individually, so no need for machine work to the engine block.
The cylinder sleeves cost me somewhere in the ballpark of $170 for one, you'd need 4.
Rings were expense too, again you'd need 4.
I had to replace my head and that cost me $500 for a used one, I pulled the valves and cleaned the valve seats myself.
Looking back it would have been cheaper to buy a used motor, slap it in the frame and run with it. If you go that route, you'd have a nice parts engine at your disposal.
Wow! yeah I did the math and for 500 for a used engine is way better than 1000.00 for just parts alone.
So is it possible the bike has more miles on it than 8000. It seems so strange to go like that.
Does seem a bit odd at that mileage. Mine has done nearly 100,00kms and doesn't blow any smoke, uses no oil between services and starts first touch every time. It has a mixture of Penske and Ohlins and Racetech suspension and I use it as a back road scratcher and the odd track day so it gets used "properly". My experience is not that unusual so I suspect someone has been telling you porkies.
