Suzuki DL1000 center case cracked

The chain broke, wrapped around the primary and busted the left center case. I'm looking for a good used replacement but can't find the correct year. Mine is a 2007, all I'm finding so far are 02's - 04's. Anybody know if the older years electrics will match up with an 07? Also the VS model engine, will the electrics match up with a DL?

Hi, Welcome. They are a matched set, you need to buy the set. (even used) Most salvage yards will sell the entire engine only and NOT just the cases.

This is a BIG job (if you meant swapping CASES, not the entire engine) for a shade tree, may require fixtures, tools, shimming, as built dimensions. What is your skill level? Any pics of the trauma?

Swapping the engine is a breeze, so to speak. Check fleabay, there are some big salvage yards always listing engines.

Put a K5 or newer SV engine in it...

Mine makes 110 rwhp.

Need to get the throttle bodies and airbox too...

I bought a a dl1000 with a thrown chain and a hole in the case. It ran great. I tried a few welding shops to fix it on the bike. The problem was contamination. I sold the bike "as is". Proper way is to split the cases. Easy fix while apart. All I saw was horrendous mission creep.
Ask yourself a few questions. Do you plan to keep the bike? What's your skill set? Buy a dl1000 motor. KISS. 2003 DL1000 has a different ECM(I Think).
SV1000 has more Hp. You need a motor, injectors, wiring harness and possible the ECM. Refer back to the 2 questions.
The guy that bought the bike did a quick hole repair and buildup on the slave cylinder boss. I anticipate the clutch seal will have some seepage with a half way repair.

Good Luck,
Les

+ 100 on used engine. Save the old one, good heads, good clutch parts.

Sorry about the misfortune. Engine swap is big job, splitting cases 4X the work.

I would go for another engine .Use the cracked case one as a donation bike if you need any parts in the future.
