engine swap information
« on: December 12, 2017, 07:24:28 pm »
Can anyone tell me or where I can find an engine swap video.  i'm taking a 88 concours engine and putting it into a 94 concours frame .  Also any pitfalls I should be aware of?

I'm not aware of a video.

I suggest using your phone and taking photo's as you remove the plastic and the engine.
ie; Pictures of correct bolt locations and plug in's make it much easier to recall later.

Biggest problem I recall is disconnecting the driveshaft.
  {I think I recall than you need to remove the swing arm to accomplish that}.
                Others can comment if I am incorrect.

Ride safe, Ted

This is for the bike that burned up? if so, just buy another bike. forgetting engine issues, all the heat on the frame would be enough to steer me away from that project. Steve
