I bought one!

I bought a 950ADV I think but it needs an engine.

Anyone know where there is a good engine laying around?

The cam chain broke.

It's a high mileage engine also.

Well that one is fuel injected. So, you'd have to get the harness and a bunch of little parts here and there.

Sounds like he bought a complete bike so IT would have all the wiringneeded.

I think the ignition system from the blown motor would need moved onto the new motor. Read that in a thread of a guy who switched from efi back to carbs on a bike.

The wire harness on the 990 is very different from the wire harness on the 950.
I was assuming he would want to run the 990 engine as a fuel injected engine. If so, the 950 harness won't work.

The 990 duke engine also has a different gear ratio btw, something to consider.

But it's all doable!

2 options

Part out the blown engine and sell the carbs, ecu and wiring loom of the 950 to fund the needed EFI wiring and ecu.

Switch over the timingwheel and rejet the carbs for the superduke engine. Then part out the blown engine to minimize the price of the bought engine.

I think I'll keep looking for a 950 engine or rebuild this one.
I'm thinking now of a total rebuild.
