625smc engine into a 640adventure chassis????

Theoretically if I had a clean high mileage KTM 640 adventure in need of a rebuild. Would there be any downside to swapping in a low mileage 625 engine from a SMC model? Rebuild parts through KTM for even just the top end quickly approach the cost of the used engine.

None that I can think of, as long as the engine your swapping in is in good shape....
