    Another Gen 1/Gen 2 compatibility question

    Is there any difference between the gen 1/gen 2 cylinder jugs? Looking to do a one stop shop for some parts but need to verify that I can put gen 2 jugs on my Futura...

    Thanks!!

    If you mean that gen 2 = single spark plug version, then the exhaust port is different.
    Can be more things as well.

    Check if the partnumbers are the same.

    Checked it for you.
    The Futura and 2004 -2005 mille have matching partnumbers for cylinder and piston kit.

    The only difference between cylinders on the Gen1 and Gen2 engines is the color.
    Early Mille, Falco, Futura and Capo cylinders were painted a dark grey color, Gen2 cylinders are unpainted aluminum color.

    Other than the color, they are all identical and interchangeable.

    Gabro mentioned to me that from 2003 onwards the rear cylinders are stronger. Dunno if he meant the jug or the crankcase.
