    Is the Connie motor a strait swap into the ZL1000? Are there any modifications I need to contend with. What years are ok to use as a donor. What other engines can I use that would be a easy in? Any members out there willing to sell a good spare engine at a fare price?

    Yeah, I'd get the latest Connie motor you can find closest to 2006. You could also put in one from a 1000R but chances are they've been beat on.

    :hello: The connie uses smaller carbs all's you have to do is use your intake boots. Also the newer connies has a 6 row starter chain set up.

    I have a spare zl1000 that was test run once and has been in storage since.

    The engine seemed to run fine and smooth but it was only tested in the frame without radiator or tires.
    The previous owner tried a cheap spray paint of it so it would need a good cleaning.

    Would be willing to sell it in the frame it sits in which means you would get some spare parts.

    PM me if interested.

    I also have a complete zl1000 that will run fine with a battery and carb cleaning Major need for that is a leak in the fuel tank at the rear mount. $1000.00 cash if you can come pick it up and transfer the title.
