    Gs500 engine

    Hey, Blew the motor is my GS500F (long story really don't want to get into it)
    Having some difficulty in finding a replacement gs500 was wondering if it is plausible to put an SV650 generally everyone i talk to tells me that "with enough money you can do anything." this is an extremely ambiguous answer and doesn't really help me - I just couldn't bear laying down a grand for an engine only to be told it cant be done. Anybody have any useful info on this? I'd be most appreciative.

    Gs500 = parallel twin
    SV = V twin

    Can't see it working too easily ...
    If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.

    You'd have to cut the headstock off and reroute that to clear the front of the SV's engine, which is really long. There's no way to accomplish this cost-effectiely and even if there was, the suspension, frame and brakes on the GS aren't up to the additional power and weight.
