916 or 996 will be a straight fit, 998, 999, 1098 & 1198 will require more work but will fit.

sorry for thread high jack...

will the 1000 DS engine fit the 848 frame ?
will the swingarm pivot be at the same position ?

Ya, this is a topic that has always interested me. wouldn't putting a larger engine in the 748 throw off the balance of the chassis or something? I can see a 996 working because both bikes used the came chassis, but a 1098? I've seen pictures of it done, but never heard any reports on how well it functions and how it compares to a 1098 bike. That would be interesting to know.
