So my buddy blew out his SOHC 750.
I have a DOHC 750 motor just lying around that we want to use on his bike.

Does anyone know if it would be a 1 for 1 swap into his frame? or are we gonna have to fuck around with moving motormounts and stuff.

Any help would be awesome

Don,t believe it will fit. The DOHC motors are taller.

No, it won't just "drop in".

Nah, it's gonna take work. The DOHC motor has 1.5" higher exhaust ports, so the exhaust won't work. It's also wider, although the front-to-rear spacing on the lower 2 mounts is the same. The upper mounts are pretty different. Not saying you can't do it, but it ain't a bolt in and go deal.

fair enough. I was pretty sure it wasn't gonna be a super simple operation. I just didn't want to give it to him and not have him know what he was getting into.
thanks guys.
