Is this a common swap? The motor swap?

What kind of power increases are you looking at?

I'll never look at a Katana the same LOL!

Semi common. The cost is what stops most from the upgrade but its as close to bolt in as you can get on an engine swap.

The stock 750 puts out 90-92 HP and 50ish ft lbs two. The b12 I have has the holeshot stage 2 jetting with pod filters, slip on and 5 degree timing adv. Based off others with that setup it should be about 120ish HP ( maybe less ) and around 80 tq

Thanks every one! New tires always make a bike feel better and with these the bike seems to like to lean more solid and steady. Tomorrow I am taking it to work to get a better feel of the new setup
