Similar year motors to 06 vl800

So my motor blew out the other month and the shop wants 5k to rebuild, I can find used motors for under 1.5k, but what I'd like to know is what years of the VL800 is able to work with my 06 c50t frame.

Welcome to the VR!! Slip on over to the new members section and introduce yourself a bit more when you are able.

Your best bet, to my knowledge, for year exact compatability is the '05 -08.

To my knowledge, the frame/engine relationship hasn't changed since the C50 came out in '05.

I believe that there were some engine changes after '08 for some markets but you would have to do an individual comparison. In some engines an extra spark plug was used in each cylinder. And other engines used an O2 sensor in the exhaust but you wouldn't be taking that with you from the donor bike.

Any extra sensors on a newer engine can be ignored when the engine is installed in the older bike system.
