    Is it a gen1 rsvr ?? If so the engine is a straight swap

    The ohlins forks need the matching yokes
    Discs and masters etc all good

    If it’s a gen2 things are a little different

    You need at least the Futura flywheel as the RSV use less pulses for ecu.

    All you need to do with the engine is swap over the flywheel, stator and stator cover. Then swap the temp coolant senders. Oh and while yer in there take the flywheel weight off.
    You will then need a remap cos all youve actually done is fitted an engine with slightly bigger valves and slightly higher lift cams.

    Its is a 2000 gen 1. Not sure whether the effort is worthwhile as mine has done 23k miles and this about 30k. The forks don’t look like ohlins I think went on the later or factory models

    If its a 2000 the engine is the same as yours with slightly higher lift cams.

    Sorry for bumping an old thread, but, what are the most powerful rsvr engine could be fitted into Futura without heavy modifications?

    Or, the better way is to fit only a few rsvr engine parts like a headers and something else and do an ecu remap?

    I have the 2002 Futura with the original H-Pipe and Staintunes plus a mild PC3 map and wonder why anyone would need any more?
    Probably only about 102HP, but with about 70-75 ft/lbs of torque and she pulls like crazy.
    I also have a 2005 Tuono Factory with all the race bits when I just need more

    Pretty sure the shift drum is reversed on the RSV / Tuono engine vs. the Caponord, Futura, and Falco too. So you'll end up with a GP shift pattern when used with a linked shifter..

    IDK... There are so many little things different between the RSV and Futura engines - sensors, ECU, valves, flywheel, stator, etc.... If I was looking for more power, I think I'd just do a 1060 kit on a Futura engine.

    Shift drum could be replaced.

    As of big-bore kit better to use it with a bigger valves headers.
    With larger valve pocket reliefs, these pistons were specifically designed for the new big-valve 2006-10 engines. They will also work well in all 1998 and later Rotax 1000cc engines, including all RSVR, Mille, Tuono, Falco, Futura, and CapoNord.
    With such headers power gain will be higher.
