I maybe didn't write that too clearly....

I just meant keep the bowden cables between the remotes & the engine, not the whole control box...

To clarify: The mechanical innards of most remotes boxes are identical, just the outer casing & lever is re-styled by the OEM. The electrics are engine specific, so unless you are good with a soldering iron, best to just swap the box.

The mechanical cables (throttle & gear) can be swapped between OEMs and aftermarket. There are a couple of types for engines of that size, but end fittingsa re pretty universal fitting to the cables, so if you have the correct end fitting kits (between £5- £15 depending on your engine for aftermarket ones). the chanes are the fittings that have come with your new engine will go straight onto your old cables.

Hopefully that makes more sense.
