    Yes.

    The entire CDI electrical system with wire harness needs to be swapped in, electric fuel pump changed to fuel pickup, choke cable installed, fuel selector valve installed, fuel filter, fuel hoses, carb rack installed, exhaust temp sensor changed, etc. Flywheel and stator are different, of course.

    Carb'ed cylinder heads are different, or perhaps you can just run with the Ficht heads and leave the injectors in place, disconnected. Probably some other stuff I have forgotten

    Unless you happen to have all of the parts laying around, its not very economical to do. You are better off fixing the DI. There is really no shortage of available parts for the DI like the carbed versions.

    The 1165 CC red Ficht engines would only use the same heads as the carbed 1200s. If you are trying to convert an MSX engine, then yes, what you say about the heads is true.
