quick question.

Don't have a lot of time to do the research so just wondering there's a quick answer to my question. Is it possible / worth swapping a 98 CBR 900 RR motor into a 919? If so will I also need a new wiring harness? I have an opportunity to buy one extremely cheap with low miles but just I'm not sure about the process and if it's worth it for a 20 or so hp boost. Thank you

Not worth it. The 919 motor is based on the 900rr , retuned for more mid range and more torque. What'd you gain in top end hp, you'd lose in mid range and torque.

You'd have a really messed up power curve too as Carb'd 900RR lump doesn't like to run without a proper airbox and you wouldn't be able to do that with the frame and tank of the 919

Also, aerodynamics of the 919 are not super-speed friendly, that that of the 900rr chassis and bodywork. No fun going fast in a bus.

Thanks for all the input sounds like it's not a wise choice.

No, anyone can drive it, but it does depend on what you've been drinking/smoking
