Will the CBR1000 mill fit my 919?

What all is involved in putting in a bigger CBR mill?

i honestly don't know if it will fit.. the best thing would be to get a 1000rr and a 919 motor side by side on the floor and measure the motor mount points... height... width... etc... trial fit it into the 919 frame.. be ready to relocate motor mounts and ya better have been paying attention in advance metal fab class....

but i would be really interested to see what happened... i can pick those motors up a dime a dozen....

What is the difference in horsepower/torque between the CBR 1000 and the 1000RR?

It would be much easier to strip the bodywork off a CBR 1000 than to shoehorn the motor in a 919.

Yes, but I don't want to, no can I afford to, pay the CBR insurance rates. Kinda like taking a 6 cylinder car and sticking a big block in it. Insurance is none the wiser!

The engine cases on a CBR1000 (and 929 and 954) incorporate a swingarm pivot boss, requiring cutting away a goodly portion of the 919 frame in the swingarm pivot area to fit it up. This, of course, leaves you with no connection between the swingarm and the frame. Add to that the fact that the vertical throttle bodies would run right into the backbone, and the secondary injectors mounted in the airbox would have no place to sit, and there are certainly more reasons it would be a wallet breaker of a swap.

What that boils down to is it is possible, but wouldn't be easy at all.

Sorry.

Rob

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

Thanks for the explanation Rob. That's all I was asking. I appreciate it.

When I wear out my motor I'm going to swap in an EX250 mill.

I convinced my insurance people that my 919 fit in the cruiser category. She bought it after some convincing. I love my insurance.

Also, mill brah, mill's and mill's mill, mill.

Obsession is a word the lazy use to define the dedicated.
