Not really because you will have to change the sump and you still have to change the fuel lines to suit & get it all wired up etc anyway, so it works out being alot more work IMO. An engine swap compared to simply bolting on the required parts needed I know what I would prefer to do (provided your own engine is still in good order). Also you can sell the carby engines electronic ignition for decent coin as most VL owners that want to run straight gas are after these and that would cover the costs of parts needed for your own conversion anyway (Standard EFI set up). Someone may even swap you for everything needed as they will no longer need any EFI gear if going straight gas...i thought it would be easier to just wack a injected or injected turbo engine in thanks for the replys
im not sure mate, thats what i got told by a few others that have done the conversion, one guy ground his the other used a high mount, i went high mount. like the other guys have said i would recommend leaving your motor in and just getting stuff to bolt on its easier, its already the series 2 block. if you go straight gas even better, timing can be advanced more plus you don't need a computer, or injectors or fuel pump or different dizzy. just get a vl or r31 manifold and plug up the injector and other holes and you have yourself a straight gas inlet manifold. i've finally got everything i need to do mine, starting it on fridayHow much does it hi by ? Is their much grinding needed?
