I have a buddy that laid his duc monster down. :mad: he gave a call and was asking if a duc engine could fit a sv650 or even a 1000 (not sure which one) i told him no but i have ben wrong alot. his madness is a "duc engine made with different engine mount should fit.... both v-twin." i told him he was wasting his time and just buy a new bike.
i think that's about it. :D what do you guys think, and don't hold back....

Different degree V's may make it interesting.... I would be curious about final drive alignment as well.

Start with detailed measurements....

Actually Ducati motors are L-twins. Not V-twins.

Anything can be done if you have the time and resources for it. The question is... Is it worth it? In this case I would say absolutely not.

he just sent me this in a email. "Ducati motorcycles are best-known for their L-twin Desmodromic valve engines (also known as a 90° V-Twin)" "The signature Ducati engine, a transverse 90° twin with the front cylinder approximately parallel to the ground and the rear cylinder vertical, is sometimes referred to as an "L" twin." he got it off wikipedia. now he is really pumped up about trying it.

VCOOK, i don't know the reason why he doesn't want to fix it. maybe to try something diff. i know he has a cod sv for a trackbike. i don't think it would work but i seen so crazy things done to bikes.

the biggest problem he will run into is with the intake system location and ofcourse the motor mounts. The mounts might be close but i have no idea what the width of the frame. It will depend on what motor he is putting in and if its a 1000 or a 650 frame. He might get lucky, but why would you do it. I would rather have a duc motor in a duc frame:)

here are a few pics i pulled up

depends which side you look at it. One side it's an L twin, but the other is a J twin:rastaman2:
But technically speaking....its called an L-twin.

:party-smiley: thanks guys! it looks doable but like nudist said the final drive could be a issue. I do agree i would like the duc again or up grade to a better duc.

Everything would be an issue in a swap like that. How proficient is this guy with wrenching/fabrication? If he's just getting started he'd sure be jumping in the deep end:confused: If he's dead set on it though I deffinatly want to see it when its done, cus it WOULD be cool.
