    May not help but this video covers the removal of a Gen I engine.

    2007 Yamaha Royal Star Venture 23k miles
    1989 Yamaha Venture Royale 6k miles
    1985 Kawasaki ZN700 4cyl shaft 5k miles

    Thanks! I was thinking I was going to have a similar experience... but remarkably, going in went much smoother than coming out.... still a PITA, but not as bad as the removal.

    Soooo, Did they change wire connectors on some of the RSV's? There's 4 wire bundles that come out near the drive shaft (pictured). The wires run under the engine somewhere but I haven't tracked where yet. Question is the wire connectors pictured, did they change for different years/models? I tried for about a 1/2 hour to connect these to the connections under the battery box before I figured out that 2 of connectors are not the same as what was on the original engine. Grrrrrrr!!!

    As far as I know, they never changed.

    I didn't think so either, Total of 4 clips, 2 connected without issue, but the other 2 were different. Supposedly both engines from 2005 RSVs.

    I guess I either need to splice in the correct clips, or try to track them back under the engine. I'm really not sure where they go or what they're for.

    Black... all black. Wait, that's just the dirty greasy grime.

    Black clip has 1 black and 1 white wire
    White clip has 2 that are different shades of green... maybe 1 mint and 1 kinda seafoam green?

    I was hoping to just remove the clips and just swap them, but I think I'm gonna have to cut and splice. Good thing is that both engines have the same color wires coming off, only the clips are different

    By my chart for 99-09 Venture.
    The white serves, Speed sensor, Cruise, Master Control, Flasher relay.
    Now for the other wire,, the greenish ones there is a choice of: Black,Brown,Chocolate, Dark Green, Green, Gray, Blue, Light Green, Orange, Pink, Red, Sky Blue, White, Yellow.
    Those are all the solid colors listed.
    Check to make sure that there are no tracer colors on those wires.
