I've got an 02 shadow spirit 1100 and a 98 shadow 1100 not sure what actual model it's is. I want swap the engines. I will have help but was wondering if I would need to change any parts or plugs that kinda stuff?
Look at the engine codes which are on a boss cast into the right side of the engine just below the cylinders. Then you will know what you have and have a good idea what might be involved in making a swap.
There were quite a few variations of the VT1100 engine. Here's the ones I've heard of.
o SC18 = Shadow
o SC23 = Spirit
o SC32 = A. C. E.
o SC37 = ACE Tourer
o SC39 = Aero
o SC43 = Sabre
