Are the frames the same?

Recommended Posts

I would like to dual sport my E model, but I don't have a title. I'm considering buying a titled frame. Do the E, S, and SM use the same frame?

some differences in s/sm vs. e frames. this applies to US models only.

s/sm has steering lock

s/sm has bracket for kickstand safety switch

fuel tanks mounts are different from s/sm vs. e(note: mounting an E tank on an S frame can be done easily).

yes kinda

the E has a different mounting system for the gas tank (welded tabs) and no mount for a helmet lock, steering lock and kickstand interlock...but in general terms they are the same frame

i guess diff country releases are different

just fitted a drc edge tailight assembly for a s/sm and same rear sub frame

:busted:

I live in Kaifornia and had an E model set up for the track. Decided to plate it. I had to change to a dual sport frame to get Cal legal vin numbers. Now have a great cyn carver and track bike.

Do the E model tanks have the same front mounts (the half circle pocket on the tank that slips over the pucks on the frame) as the S/SM metal tanks?
