My question is will a 1100 motor fit in a 650 frame? Does any body know what the difference is in both those bikes besides the engine size,lettering,color ect. Thanks for any input.
Im a pipe welder/ fabricator would i have to worry about any other wiring or any oddball things?Looking at finding a chassis for the 920 Virago engine and it SEEMS that it would fit well in the 650 frame thanks to the 650's "dummy heads".
I just did a side by side comparison and measurements and haven't actually tried the swap yet, but I see no reason it shouldn't.
Now for what difference there would be in height of the 920 and the 1100 I don't know. I know they're both of the same blood.
For reference of anyone curious, the 920 DOES have the lower front mount location even though it's not used on the Virago.
The 1100 is the same way. As much as they look the same they are totally different.I see this post is pretty old so I was wondering if anyone ever actually attempted putting a more powerful motor in the v star 650 frame?
I just got a 2000 v star 650 and I like it but when I get to about 60mph it just feels like it needs another gear lol.
