10R 2008 engine on a ZX10r 2006-07

hello there

do you know guys if it's possible to install the engine of a 10r 2008 on a 10r 2006 ? I know that the engines are similar, and it's possible to install it, but I wonder if I can use the ECU and the electric wiring of the 2006 for that engine.

my only concerns are about the ignition timing...do you know something about it ?
thanks
Claudio

I dont' know for sure, but I think that a 2008 engine will fit in a 2006 chassis. Externally they look the same, other than clutch cover appearance.

You'll need a way to control the extra 4 injectors on the 08 motor. I have seen the swap done before, but I believe at least the ecu and most of the back half wire harness from the 08 was used on the 07 bike(for the extra injector control).

Or you could just use the throttle bodies from the '06.

Is it really a direct bolt on? No mods needed if letting 06 throttle bodies?

what about exhausts? if a g3 exhaust'll work on my g2 that will greatly ease my search.
