Re: frame differences
The registration of the bike goes by the frame, not the motor.
You legally can take all the 98 parts and swap them onto the 94 frame (and your bike will for all intensive purposes, be a 94).
But you cannot legally swap the compliance/serial numbers off the 94 frame onto the 98 and then re-register it as a clean 98.
BTW, the frames are not the same. The top triangle (under the tank) is shorter on the 98 than the 94, so if you use the 94 frame, you will also need a 94 subframe and rear shock.
