DL650-SV650 Engine swap?

If a DL650 has a tired engine, is it feasible to swap it for a complete unit from an SV650? I know it will physically bolt in, but are things like electrical connections and throttle bodies compatible?

Yes, but AFAIK, you need throttle bodies, wiring loom and ECU to make it easy.

It has been done.

I know an SV1000 engine has been installed in a DL1000 with a lot of work involved.
SV Engine Swap & chassis overhaul

I've never heard of an SV650 swap. Do you have a link?

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s
