Doesn't the F4I's rear engine mount serve as swingarm pivot point also? If so, it'd be very hard doing the 1KRR. You'd have better luck with the 929/954. Any of them will fit, none of them will be bolt in LOL. Google the heck out of it and see what pops up.

They are both FI. Anything can be done. Just depends on how far you're willing to go. I couldn't find squat searching for info on doing XX swap into my 9RR. I just took what lil info I did find and took a leap of faith. Turned out to be alot easier than it looked. Guess it depends on a person's background, too.

I heard 1000 motors fit real well into 1000 frames....

I get the 1100 into a 900rr but why put a 1000 into the f4i instead of getting a 1000 bike?

And its always from people that have only a couple posts and even if someone spent all their time walking them through it they most likely would never give any input back on exactly how it was done.
