312 engine in a 750 chassis

So.... Has or can it be done ???

Iv heard of the 1000s being fitted but not the 312

Seems like a sensible project

Yes it can be done without to much hassle, but remember you'll need to swap over the engine wiring harness, ECU, updated charging system, exhaust pipe work and a few other bits and pieces..

Have a word with Hans, as he did a similar upgrade on his Brutale.

James.. It might be a consideration to purchase a cheap, low mileage 312 and swap all your bits over including the full Senna bodywork and wheels..

Then sell off the old F4 with the 312 bodywork kit.

Two to three hours work ..

@ JDS, yes that sounds a much more sensible idea, iv an accessory list of over 5k now and thats not including the exhibition grade paint, it would be financially InSaNe to sell it & loose so much, hence doing a motor overhaul - besides, I really want to retain the size and set up of mine & the 'proper' yellow tacho. I'll look out for 312's & get a feel for price etc. if I do it right it will only cost me time and 1-2k

@ agustaboy, thanks for offering help etc. i reckon I'll be ok with it but it's reassuring to know someone who's done it already- just incase I get stuck

@ Woodster, thanks for the offer- I'm going to get a 'donor bike' as you've prob' gathered, financially it makes huge sense, besides, try finding just a 312 engine, loom & ecu- they'd be big bucks, then there's the smaller bits like down pipes etc etc... Far easier to have a donor bike-

Unless... I find a write off 312 then a track 750 could emerge from the spares lots of food for thought & I need to make some calls & crunch numbers

Thats easier because you stick with euro2 ECU etc.
The big thing from 750 to 312 is euro2 to euro3, different ECU and all bits and signals it needs.

@ JDS, I went from 910r euro3 to 312RR euro3, so it was a snug fit with the cabling, then some oil radiator and water pipes (F4->B4).
