    96xp 787 engine in a 97gsx

    can i just take my 787 from a 96xp and drop it in the 97 gsx, i noticed the electronics are different. do i have to swap out any parts like the magneto?

    you shouldn't have to. 787are all pretty much the same from motor to motor.

    +1 one had a 787 and the other had a 951. with that said the whole charging system is different as well as the front mount.
