As is stated above, no, it's not a drop in.

That being said, I'm sure if you threw enough money at it, you could do it.

No. The engine is not a direct swap. If you want to use the C50 motor in the VL800 you have to remove the charging and ignition system, the cylinder heads, intake and fueling system from the existing VL800 engine and transfer them over the C50 engine. The underlying engine block and internal components are the same, but the above parts are different and not interchangeable.
