Electric fuel pump wiring, output shaft (unless you also change to the 1200 swingarm and drive shaft) and convert the bike to a hydraulic clutch or convert the engine to a clutch lever.

I'm not sure about the ignition because I used a C5 ignition when I did it, so I didn't need to worry about the ecm. Some have used the 1100 carbs, I went with a single carb setup. The 1200 xarbs on a 1200 motor in an 1100 feame are a TIGHT fit. The stock airbox and filter wkll not work.
