Had a high-school auto shop teacher stuff a 750 triple into a 500 chassis, and couldn`t fer
the life of me figure out how he was beating me drag racing.
One day, measured the heads on his engine , they were 1.35 inchs wider than mine. :doh:
Next time we met up, smoked him :) Had sumthin to do with 80% nitromethane in the tank :lol:
Back to you question ---Nope. the 1800 is taller and wider. However, a welder and some grinding,
Anything will fit. :think:
