Has anyone thought about installing a 1098S or 1098R engine in the DB7? How easy would it be?

Someone on here did swap out the entire fuel injection system from a Duc 1098 onto a bad running DB7....full wiring loom, ECU and clocks.....Engine is the same....the 1198 will also fit as this went into the DB8....

Can't see why it would cause to many head aches just the wiring and the ecu really.

Evidently the 1098R engine like from a troy Corser rep is actually the 1198 engine......As vort says...its down to wiring...you will be chopping and changing a lot to stretch to various things in the place that Bimota fitted them as opposed to where Ducati fitted them....I used to think that they used a standard Ducati loom for the more modern bikes...but now think its a purpose made unit
