    Hi would a blaster engine from a 2001 go into a frame from 2005 the frame has almost all the parts except the engine all the shocks and swing arm and axle etc. does it have the same motor mounts? im just wondering if it would be worth getting because its cheap. also if it is possible how do you remover the engine from the frame?

    don't forget the stators are different. 88-02 are 4 wire 03+ are 5 wire. IIRC you'll have to ground the green wire on the harness.

    if you are using a wiring harness from an 02 or older it wont matter but the wiring harness wont hook up right to the 03+ stator

    On the older stator plate (88-02) has four wires which go into the harness. One ground, one power from the source coil, one power from the lighting coil, and one trigger signal from the trigger coil.

    The newer stator plate (03-06) had 5 wires. One ground directly to the plate and frame, one power from the source coil, one ground floated to the source coil and isolated from the frame, one power from the lighting coil, and one trigger signal from the trigger coil.

    If you have an older model stator plate but a newer harness you'll need to pull the stator plate off and float the ground on the source coil into a separate wire which can plug into the green/white wire on the harness.
