I got the 8 gen motor to start with the 6 gen wire harness, ecm, throttle bodies
....and it runs
It ticks over at idle and sounds ok, got a short video that I may up load
After it had warmed up and I started to give it some berries it didn't sound right,
it would not rev cleanly above 9-10 thousand rpm's and when shifting up thru the gears it stalled between random shifts, particularly 5-6, I had all the neutrals shorted, I am guessing some timing changes between generations
Considered grafting the 8 gen wire harness and ecm onto this bike, but I would rather leave those two pieces of pie together for another possible project.and it has all this additional associated accessories, heated grips, self canceling indicators, ABS, traction control.
So I am calling it out of this years build off.... best of luck to all remaining.
Discovered coolant in the inlet of the previous motor...see new thread
