Hi,
Done a lot of work to my 99 speed triple 955i bike over the years and now the engine is burning oil, checked the breather pipe to see if the oil seal has gone on the lower left side of the engine and there is very little amount of oil coming from there also the third pot compression is hitting 135 and when I left the dial on it went down so it's leaking, the other two are 150 and not leaking.
So I'm thinking if I'm looking to buy another engine do I just get another 955i or buy a 1050 engine that would fit in my frame!!!
If I go down the 955i route I be back on the road sooner.
If I go for a 1050 engine what year would fit straight into my frame and what other things would I need to consider??? Wiring, oil cooler and radiator, etc, ect.

What's your opinion guys??
