Engine similarities?

Engine similarities?

I know that the 2012 engine is similar to the Gladius engine.

I know that the 2011- 650 engines is similar to the SV650 engine.

I know that the Gladius and SV650 engines are similar...

...but to what extent?

If you had no other obstructions, frame differences, etc. would the exhaust pipes from an SV650 fit on the W2?

Anybody know?

But you do, so what's the point?? If the engine was just hanging in the air any pipe from any of the SV/Gladius/Wee variants would fit. As it is, even first and second gen SVs take different pipes.

The point is that the angles are correct, correct distance between exhaust ports, correct pipe diameter, etc.

I can cut and weld the pipe if necessary, but I'd like it to be generally correct to start with.

Because a bolt on aftermarket exhaust kit for the 12 650 is $900 and I can buy a used system off an SV for little $$ in comparison.

Diameters are the same, you may have fun with supporting the rear of an SV pipe.

However, you will want to keep the O2 sensor, so you may need to weld in a fitting for that.

All that stuff is the same. I'm guessing that you'll have to do some pipe bending, or weld up the appropriate bend out of conic sections.
