Bruce, take a few rough measurements from both engines. Measure at the frame mounting locations. If one location measures 6" and the same location on the other engine measures 7" then obviously there is a swap out problem. If the rough measurements appear to be very close it will likely work. The only way to know for sure is to try the swap. It may be possible to cut and relocate a mount or two to adapt the frame for the new engine. Just be sure the chain lines up with the rear sprocket.

The correct term is Throttle Cable. use needle nose pliers to remove it from the grip, take your new cable and run it the same way the old one was ran. follow the old one, then take the old cable out after installing the new cable.

Ken Budd's answer is incorrect: There is only a potential engine problem when the oil light comes on permanently.
The speedo/mileometer on thge Majesty normally sends pulses to a counter that switches on the oil-change warning light at 3,000 km. If the speedo/mileometer ceases to function the oil-change warning light blinks steadily simply to let you know the pulses aren't getting sent to the counter.
The most likely problem is a broken speedo cable; a new one costs £5.72 from AJSutton and you can easily fit it yourself: Take off the windscreen then reach through the gap above the headlamp to unscrew the outer cable beneath the speedo.
I've got the same problem as you right at the moment with my 1996 Majesty but in my case its the gear unit on the front axle (to which the speedo cable connects) that has stopped working: I'm currently on the look out for a new gear unit. Does anybody have one ?
