Good question. You might want to go over to the new members forum and introduce yourself.

Short answer, yes.

Now go introduce yourself in the New to Community section and make sure you have a Service Manual in hand before you start the swap.

As long as the engine serial number is not recorded on the title or registration, it makes no difference what year engine is in the frame, the frame is what carries the VIN. The title and registration use the VIN, not engine serial number in most states...

Sorry to pop your bubble but your trying to go from an engine from a touring bike frame to a dyna frame & I know for a fact that the primary's are totally different , not sure about the oil tanks .
Don't think they will work .
Ask Super Dave .
