Fitting the 2003 LC4 engine into 2000 Adventure frame

Hi mates,

So my old engine decided to break down and i had an offer for 3 years younger engine for a price, that was way cheaper than would go on the repair of old one. Since I am one lazy dumbass, I bought the engine without any research on compatibility with my 2000 LC4 Adventure R frame. So I fitted the engine in the frame, looks perfectly good but as more I progress the more I realize, that electrical wiring and sockets won't match with the new engine and probably I need the wiring and CDI of the 2003 LC4 model to make it run.
So my question is: Is it possible to make that 2003 LC4 engine work properly in the 2000 LC4 Adv and what else i have to mod or replace from the electrical part?

Best Regards,
Lonely Rider

640 Adventure R

Have you got the motor in yet? Either you need to have the 03 wiring harness AND CDI or you need to find color codes and splice wires.. get a friend that is REALLY good at electical.. it cant be that hard

I'm assuming the plug that dosen't match on the new engine is from the stator since that is about all it would come with. So, I'm thinking, either splice that harness or swap stators from the old engine into the new.
