I am looking to buy a motorcycle for week-long trips. I believe that the Honda CTX1300 is the perfect size but the much smaller Honda CTX700D has the perfect transmission for me. Would it be a problem to replace the manual transmission in the CTX1300 (1261cc engine) with a dual clutch transmission (DCT) from the Honda CTX700D (670cc engine), i.e., would the larger engine be too much for the DCT to handle?

The transmissions are not something that just bolt on, but rather integral to the engine.

It might be possible with a full machine shop, an engineering staff, and unlimited funding, but probably not practical.

Thank you for your quick reply. I see that you are located in Illinois. Whereabouts if you don't mind saying so? I was born and raised near Aurora.
