500 Rotax Motor in a 400 Outlander Frame? Where can I find a motor?

Many of you know my motor blew in my 2004 outlander 400. Considering I do not think I can get a nicer ATV in my budget I am looking at placing in a motor in my frame. I see a 400 motor on ebay for 1000 bucks. Seeing how the 500 motors use a different design that doesnt have that retarded weight on it can I use a 500 motor in my frame? They look very similar except for it being a V-Twin.

If not where can I find motors for a good price? Ebay doesnt have many.

I think it would be a lot more work then it is worth you are talking computer the entire whire harness and to be honest I don't know if it would even fit. As far as the your concerns about the 400 that stuff can be removed and replaced with stuff off the 800.

I had the cam chain jump off my 400 motor and that retarded weight broke. I am not 100% sure what caused it but I heard about swapping parts. What parts do I need to swap off the 800 to keep my cam chain on properly. I never use the pull starter.
