Gen 1 to Gen 3 exhaust flange adapter

Does anyone make an adapter to replace the flanges on a round port exhaust to allow it to bolt to a 13+ oval port head? Basically wanting to reuse my gen1 style exhaust after a 2013 engine swap.

I havenít purchased an engine yet, but thatís what Iím leaning towards. Just trying to reduce cost where I can with additional parts.

Otherwise I could just buy an entire 2013+ bike for not much more. Or better yet, find an MVF3 to add to the stable.

skip the MV unless you do some serious research about reliability and costs.... I had one

as for the 13+ swap to gen one, might be easier to just buy a 13+ as there is a lot that needs attention, unless you are doing a full donor swap over from the 13+ bike.

hit me up more than happy to discuss

Most of you people are not capable of being your GD self, to damn worried about being politically correct.

+1 ^ JD is the man and knows his s#$&. I have been working on a swap and have put it on hold due to numerous issues. Putting a gen3 engine in a gen1 or gen2 bike is definitely not plug and play. In hindsight I should have just bought a gen3 bike, but they are so ugly

An engine swap seems much more difficult than fitting gen 2 fairings to a gen 3. The 3's tank & tail are fine, just gotta fix that hideous face.

I wouldnít be doing this to create Ďa pretty gen3í. Id pursue if it meant a $2k engine and possibly minor ancillaries and a fresh tune gets me a significant power increase.

Gen3s typically Dyno close to 120whp on my local dynp and mine doesnít want to make more than 105-107ish.

Buying a complete 13+ is atleast $5k and takes the fun out of it. An F3800 is a whole new fun thing to dive into.

Would love to hear your MV story. 675 or 800?
Iíve read plenty of Daytona 675 horror stories too. But perhaps Iíve just been lucky. 10yrs and nearly 8500 track/race miles and never a single mechanical failure.

Now you tell me:-)


Depends on ones skill set and body work is not one of my strengths. I failed to mention that I don't like the Gen3 cast subframe either. The tubular subframe on the Gen1/2 bikes looks much better IMHO.
