Will 2016 Engine Fit 2008 R125?

  1. Hi guys,
    I recently blew my engine out so now I'm looking into another one.
    I found a decenlty cheap 2016 engine. But if I remeber correctly the bike got a face-lift somewhere around 2014.
    So I there anything changed engine-wise?

  2. I've done the exact same thing and have the exact same question haha!
    Hopefully someone has the definitive answer because all the engines pre-2013 are not so low on the ol' mileage.

    I asked a Ebay seller, and he told me there were "slight adjustments to the mount points" which made it incompatible with the pre-facelift models...
    This was an Ebay salesman and by no means a Yamaha mechanic, but it's unlikely it'll fit.

    Anyone else got any ideas?
