just got a 929 ...

just got a 929 today that was dropped and had damage to the stator cover. Behind the stator cover there is a crack in the engine block. This happens pretty frequently on 929s. I think Im gonna get a nice 954 engine and do a swap.

Any advice or suggestions? Id like to get a minty set of red/white OEM fairings & tank for it, and chrome out everything. The fairings on it now are yellow/black and are in good condition. I'll just sell the fairings i have if anyone wants em.

Re: just got a 929 ...

Re: just got a 929 ...

If the crack is weldable it'd be a lot less work than changing the engine.
It is a common problem on the 929 but the 954 is the same as they're the same motor.

IT DEFINITELY COULD BE WELDED, BUT I ASSUME THAT THE MOTOR WOULD HAVE TO COME OUT ANYWAYS TO DO THAT. I THINK IT HAS LIKE 30K ON IT ANYWAYS .....

ITS A PROJECT. I DONT MIND TAKING OUT AN ENGINE. I WAS PLANNING ON GETTING EVERYTHING CHROMED, INCLUDING TEH FRAME, SO ITS INEVITABLE.

Re: just got a 929 ...

As long as you can get to the crack with the welder then the engine doesn't have to come out.
Remove the ECU first though.

AGAIN, THE MOTOR HAS 30K ON IT, AND ISNT WORTH PUTTING MONEY INTO. I WANT TO CHROME EVERYTHING SO THE MOTOR HAS TO COME OUT REGARDLESS. ID LIKE A FRESH 954 MOTOR IN THERE.

SO FAR, THERE ARE LOTS OF DIFFERENT OPINIONS ON WHAT THE SWAP SHOULD ENTAIL.

I HAVE FOUND THAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO USE THE FUEL INJECTION & FI WIRING FOR 954, BUT THAT'S IT. YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO USE STOCK SWITCHES FROM HANDLE BARS AND STOCK WIRE HARNESS TOO.

Re: just got a 929 ...

30K isn't exactly old.
I'm running 954 throttle bodies on my 929 and I know at least one member here that was running 929 throttle bodies on a 954 engine he put in his 929.

ok, well if you have a 954 motor with 929 fuel injection system .. beware. that is an easy way to blow your motor. the fuel injection on the 954 is completely different from 929. even physically in size as well. way different with rich/lean settings.

anyways ... whatever. if you want to buy my 929 engine i got, be my guest. its very clean.

What a load of rubbish.
Would you like to explain exactly how you could possibly blow a motor this way?
The 954 throttles are 42mm bore rather the 929's 40mm bores which is why I use them on my race bike.
The fuel injection is exactly the same.
A throttle body is nothing like a carburetor.
It's a simple hole with a plate to vary the size of it for air to flow through with an electric fuel injector mounted in it to supply fuel.
No part of the throttle body affects the fuel/air ratio. It's controlled from the ECU.
The 929 and 954 motors are identical except the bores are 1mm larger.

chrome on a sportbike.

do you have any idea how long your bike will last if you take care of it. i have seen examples of blades go over 200k miles. fix the crack and keep it if it runs fine. you will have more money left over for the chrome or other things you may want to do.

Re: just got a 929 ...

What year did you get? I have a 2000 yellow and black and could use a fairing piece. Specifically the right lower and right mid if there are no scratches. Let me know. Thanks!
