Any constructive advice is welcome.
So guys the project is underway, I have dived in with very little facts on fitment but my investigations seems close to a good fit .
Here's some facts:
a] base gaskets are the same.
b] conrods are the same.
c] head bolt lengths and diameter are the same.
d] top of the air box is the same.
e] bottom of the air box is different due to throttle body size.
f] SS is single spark plug, monster 1200 is twin spark.
g] Cylinder heads and cams are different.
h] stroke length on 2014 monster is same and bore increases from 96mm to 106mm - cylinders are obviously different.
i] Cylinder head covers are the same.
Purchased 2nd hand from multiple suppliers/sellers:
For the ethical record, I have seen evidence of bike accident damage, so nothing stolen.
a] Complete twin spark cylinder heads with cams and valves etc are procured off 2014 monster 1200S.
b] twin spark coils and cords procured off 1200 base.
c] 56mm throttle bodies (SS is 53mm) Means the lower airbox needs altering. Off a 2016 monster 1200S.
d] Monster 1200 cylinders and pistons procured.
b] New piston rings
c] investigate if monster lower air box will fit the SS or simply make the holes bigger.
d] EDIT: Procure inlet manifolds
