Don't have an answer for you, but the yamaha website would be able to help a little.

Yamaha Parts

You can print off the pictures of the frame/chassis and compare what is different about them.

From my observations, it looks like the bottom motor mounts are the same, but the top ones are definitly different. You would probaly have to have a machine shop mill you some special mounts.
