The first question is why you would like to do that. I am sure it technically possible.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Tell us more Mike. Welcome to the forum.
If your 1000R motor is dead, the 1078 is a nice little replacement, but it's not a completely straight forward job. There are some electrical and smaller mechanical differences which can mess you around a bit if you did not know about these.

Perhaps a 1080 kit might be a better option...but...if ti ain't broke why fix it?
Remap, Microtech first.

My engine is ok but I was thinking of turning my mv into a track bike an saw there was a 1078 engine for sale and was thinking of buying it an keep my 1000r engine as a spare, but I didn't no there was a 1080 kit,where can I buy one from an how much? The 1078 engine comes complete with wire loom ecu, ect ect would it be a straight forward job to change it over?

Smile Mike ?

If you can get a 1078 motor with injectors, throttle bodies and a loom with ECU, it's a weekend job, and in my opinion a lot easier to do than a 1080 kit.
But.... all depending on how much you wanted to spend I guess.

Not sure if you can still get the 1080 kit but Fast by Ferracci used to sell the kit. Where are you located ?

Had both the 1000r and the 1078 on track,,, very little real difference .

Don't bother, the 1000r is smoother/less viby and IMHO just as quick for all intent and purpose on track days.
