    85 to 89 conversion

    Hello all,

    I am writing because I am having trouble finding some answers. I have a 1985 Kawasaki js550 with a large hole in the hull. It has been patched before, but I dont trust the patch and dont feel like going through that again. I found a 1989 Kawasaki js550 hull online. Will all the parts from the 85 convert to the 89......at least the main parts without a lot or any modification? Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

    The hull swap wouldn't be difficult, the only production change that took place is the exhaust outlet is on the right side and with a simple hose from ebay - http://www.ebay.com/itm/KAWASAKI-Jet...a60ee1&vxp=mtr the swap could be completed.

    The 90 and newer 550's had a different drive line and rear exhaust so that swap would be a little more difficult.
