This question has been posted for two month's. I can't believe one has any sort of answer. I thought this would be the perfect site.

Simply no you cant, its not just a few bolts and slap it in. Because you would have to custom machine all kinds of brackets. You would have to split the cases and somehow put the cvt on it. all of the lines that run to different places your exhaust would have to be custom made. So yea it would be a ton of work, it would be wiser just to see the 500 and buy something newer.

You can do anything if you really want to! But doing that is far from easy and you would most likely be better off purchasing a newer machine.

Im in the process of putting a 400 manual into a 500 auto frame some of the motor mounts are different. i also had to machine a spacer because the drive shaft was to short. it is possable to do what you are talking about. but you will most likely have some customizing to do.
