    Fuji and Domestic swap ionfo needed

    I was just wondering, can I take the motor and driveline from an older SL650 and swap it into a Hurricane hull? Do the motors mount the same? Are the pumps the same?

    I like your thinking. Aren't most of the small domestics 2 cyl though?

    You would be adding more weight and less power to that hurricane hull. You would be better off just putting a 700 in it. It would actually be easier to install a 3 cylinder domestic motor in there. More weight but big power!

    I was just wondering if mounts and pumps are the same cause there is so much missing from the 'cane and I have a complete sl650.

    The mounts are completely different. However, if you were to put a domestic 3 cylinder in there, at least the PTO end mounts would stay the same. The jet pump components are interchangeable however. The Hurricane has its own unique drive shaft as well. I would love to pick up a hurricane project sometime if I can find one cheap enough, and in good enough condition to make it worthwhile. I don't care what mechanical condition its in however, I most likely have the parts I would need to fix it.

    Actually I guess this one could be brought back. The info gauge is gone, carbs are missing, Has Kawi bars and switches, and no jet pump. Motor is in great shape, driveshaft is here, pipe is here, and fuel /oil tanks are present. I just didn't feel like I could make any money on it by putting it all back together. Gen 3 stator and CDI and the stator and coil check good. Body and belly are in good shape too.
