? about swapping a 954 motor to a 929

Well have done some research but I am wondering if you can just use the 929 harness injectors blah blah pretty much just swap the motors and use all the 929 stuff with the 954 block heads whole motor

Yes, you can.

Yes, it'll run fine but it would run better if you also replaced the entire harness, ECU, instrument cluster and ignition switch.
If you replace the harness then you will be missing the connector for the fan switch in the 929 radiator but I would expect the 929 fan would run just fine off the 954 harness connector.

Ok I may sound stupid but when you say it will run fine, do you mean just like normal, or what?

Re: ? about swapping a 954 motor to a 929

It'll run just like a bike should but it won't run as optimally as it will with the correct ECU. The correct ECU will also require changing the other electrics though so you may want to just swap the engine in first and swap the rest over later on if you decide you want to.

A PC mapped to suit would be good to optimise it with the non-954 ECU too I would think.

Ok another ? are the side cases the same? The 954 motor is missing the stator cover and stator will the 929 stuff work?

Re: ? about swapping a 954 motor to a 929

Nope.
The 929 cover will fit the motor but the 929 stator won't fit in the 954 cover and the 929 stator won't fit the 954 rotor.
I _think_ that if you get a 929 stator, cover and rotor then the whole lot should fit just fine.
I wouldn't waste money on a secondhand stator as they all go bad eventually and "eventually" might be the day after you buy it :-)
And if you're going to buy a new aftermarket one you may as well get a 954 one that you know will fit your rotor. Then you only need a 954 cover which is also cheap enough to buy new or, if you want to avoid a smashed off stator in the future you can buy a heavy racing cover.
