I have a 2009 k1300s with a bad motor. I would like to install a 2007 k1200rs with 10000 miles. Can I get ucm reprogram to this engine? or does someone have a motor for k1300s ?

Yes, you can do motor swaps from 12 to 13 and back again but why go backwards? With a little work, you should be able to find a 1300 or a whole wrecked bike with a good motor. Go look thru Craig's List in major cities close to you first. Then look in the SunBelt all across the Southern Tier of the Nation where motorcycling is big like Miami, Dallas, Houston, Phoenix, LA, and especially the SF Bay Area.

If that doesn't get it, start working the entire nation. I live in Seattle but bought my '08 K 12 S in Minneapolis. It was worth it. I found a low miles well cared for bike owned by a middle aged professional engineer and it was the bare bones version I wanted.

You can work out shipping all across the nation and it's pretty reasonable especially if you aren't in a big hurry.
