I’m looking to swap motor, wiring harness and tins from an 04 Nomad 1500 fi to a 98 Classic 1500 ci frame.
Is it “plug and play” or will there be modifications that need to be made?
Thanks in advance!!

I’m going to assume from a nuts and bolts perspective, it’s all there, and will swap. I’ve put a lot of parts from Nomads on my Classic. The Nomad left engine cover has a completely different generator system than the Classic, but with you transferring the harness and all, you should be good. I don’t suspect there will be drive shaft fitment issues. The nomad dual exhaust depends on the bag brackets, but bolting on a Classic one side slash cut or similar is compatible with the heads. I’m thinking the connectors for the lights will be different on your harness, but there are a lot of solutions for that. I suspect if you aren’t transferring the bar controls, you may have electrical connector differences there too, not because it’s from a Nomad as much as the 6 years of difference.
