Default Gladius top end, fit SV, Mini Twin?

I bought a Gladius with a fubared engine, the big end has gone but the top end, pistons, barrells heads etc are all ok. I've replaced the engine with a 2nd hand one and want get rid of the original engine. I understand that the cams on the Glad are more aggressive & give a few more HP than the standard SV cams and that they can be fitted to any twin plug engine. I just want to get rid of everything to free up space, I would rather somebody took the complete engine but if any body wants the top end they can have it & I will dump the bottom end.
Offers invited, collection only please I am in North Northamptonshire 5 mins from Junc 1 of the A14
Thanks

This is the reply from a Moderator of the SV650Riders Forum when I asked if the top end would fit an SV

yes you can play swaparound. as long as the bike ends up with dual plug heads so the electronics are happy.
the gladius cams are the most aggressive of the stock cams so they're good for a couple hp. so definitely keep those whichever motor you do (you can put them into the old heads too)
