    would a engine change from vz 800 m50 to a vl800 c50 work?

    Hi I don't know if this has been asked but would a engine from a 2012 boulevard c50 with a vl800 fit into a 2010 boulevard m50 with a vz800 engine, has bottom end gone and i have been told by some that it will fit and only one that it won't and my local suzuki mechanic doesn't have a clue so any help would be great, thanks

    Up until 2009 the M50 and C50 had slightly different engines, internal details only. But with the M50 model change in 2009 (when the headlight shroud was introduced for the M109 look) the engines became identical. Can't see any reason why a post 2009 M50 vz800 engine shouldn't be able to be fitted into a C50 which had a vl800 engine. Acyually, isn't vz800 and vl800 only the bike model number? Post 2009 they're the same engine.

    Thats the thing that has me stumped that everything engine wise seems to look the same, even plastics around the engine but for $1700 for a low k's engine and if it doesn't fit it will be a experience paper weight
