954 motor on 929 frame

Recently purchased a bike from a friend and have been corrected a few times on here about what class of bike it is. The bike is an 01 929 frame with an 03 954 motor. I searched to see if anyone has done this and didnt get to far. With this being my first bike I was wanting to know if this could cause any long term bad effects. Thanks for the help!

Re: 954 motor on 929 frame

I've never heard of any and dont see why there should be any.

In terms of mechanics, there is nothing to worry about.

In terms of electronics, Im not 100% sure if you need the 954 ecu and harness or if you can just plug and play with a different engine in the 929 frame.

It's not uncommon.
The engine will be an SC50 engine number if it's a 954.

Re: 954 motor on 929 frame

Thanks for the help! This leads me to believe that I need to purchase two service manuals since the seller didn't have one. Sound right?

No. The engines are similar enough that the 929 manual will be fine.
If you decide to build the engine though it'd be good to have a 954 manual.
Or you get the Haynes as that covers both models.

Re: 954 motor on 929 frame

I have always trusted Haynes. I will go that route. What about when it comes time to electronics purchase?

If you mean a PC3 then you would want one that matches your ECU so you'd want to confirm you have 929 electrics.
You can make either 929 or 954 PC3 work on the bike but it's easier if it's the right one for the ECU.
If you still have the fan switch in the left radiator tank then you probably have the 929 ECU. But the ECU connectors are very different so you can tell for sure by looking at those.
Otherwise, not many parts are interchangeable between the two bikes so always try to confirm what you have before buying replacements.

Re: 954 motor on 929 frame

Another obvious check is if the bank angle sensor is mounted on the back of the headlight it's a 954 harness and ECU. If it's under the rear tank mount it's a 929 harness and ECU.
