Help with a Ninja 500R Engine swap into a vulcan 500
Hello, I'm Vinny. I currently have a 1995 Vulcan 500. I know, why are you here then. This is a ninja forum. Thing is my vulcans engine isn't running. I could rebuild it, but I've been told I can swap the engine with a Ninja 500R engine. I'm looking at a 2005 Ninja 500R engine and from what I've gathered it's the same except the top end and carburetors. My vulcans carbs are stage 3 dyno jetted and have k&N pod filters. Now I wanted to know if I could swap the engine from the 500R into the EN500 frame and harness without any other mods, and if there are modifications I have to do in order to make it work, what would they be? Like will the carbs I have now work? Can I seal off the reel valves like I did on my current motor? Suggestions? Comments?
