do a search... this has been aske dso many times....

There are no major differences between a 1989 engine and a 2000 engine. you wont need to change electrics. The only major difference between early and late models are the Tank, seat and plastics. There are a few minor changes. shim on the cams, different width of the drive splines on the final drive sprocket but nothing to prohibit an engine swap..
