    A question somewhat along the same line: is the 1300 engine of the VTX the same as the one used in the Fury/Interstate models?

    no proof... most likely yes.

    except possible. the addition of sensors and there mounting points... for electronics. fuel injection systems.
    I have no interest.. so not looking up 20-30 part numbers.

    Honda is very well known to USE what is available... not design for the sake of design.. except prototypes..
    why do you think the brake parts on many Honda's are the same...VTX, Goldwing, CBR.....

    even on bikes... ST1300 sport tourer into a want-a-bee Cruiser... SAD.

    then the Goldwing Flagship.. into a bagger.. could have done so much more. I know shrinking market.

    Everything I've seen on the parts fiche would indicate that the engine hard parts are the same. The intake manifold out to the air cleaner is different. And the exhaust has ports for oxygen sensors. But I think everything in between is the same.

    If you have any questions about interchangeability, I'd take a long hard look at the parts fiches, just to be sure.

    To that end the rear brake of my VTX1300 is also the same as that used on my GSX650F (excepting VTX brake is silver but GSX650F is matt black)

    I wonder then if one could either make a Fury/Interstate carborated, or the VTX injected with parts swaps?
