    2001 polaris virage conversion

    Has anyone ever converted an noncarbed virage 700cc to an 800cc fuel injected?

    If possible what conversions are necessary. I have an 800cc motor and wiring harness.

    Thank.s

    Looked at going the other way many a time .Need to be very patient and have good bank account for success .Would use aftermarket system though.Why not go the whole hog and bore it to the max and see what it does ?

    Do you mean a carbed 700 to an injected 800?
    If so the only issues I can think of right away are mounting temp sensors and the crank position sensor. You'd need all the manifolds with the throttle position sensor. I'm sure I've missed some other things BUT you will also run rich as the 800 injection system is going to run more fuel than the 700 requires.

    Or are you asking something else?

    Yes, I have a 700 with a blown engine. And I have come across an 800cc working engine with all wiring the hull was demolished. I am just wondering how easy a swap it is? If I have all the sensors and wiring, does it just mount to same points as the 700 in the hull?

    The cases are the same so you will have no issues with mounting the engine, you have all of the electronics so mounting them will be the only issue, piece of cake.
    I would imagine you purchased the fuel pump/sender as well? The injection system is high pressure and will require the stronger pump.
    It would be nice to know the years and see what you'll need to do about the wiring harness and MFD.
    Small issues aside, I think you have an awesome project on your hands!!
