01 Vulcan 1500 carburetor compatibility

ok I'm fairly new to cruisers. I recently bought a 2001 vulcan 1500 needed a tank seat battery and lights because the guy i bought it from laid it over. i paid 1100 ( to much) now after going a custom firearm for someone i came into a 98 vulvan 800 classic just needs the carburetor. Is it possible to swap it over and what if any other parts are useable covers foot peg you get the point

As far as I know. The VN800 has a Keihin 36-38CVK. the 1500 has a CVK40..it'll require some jetting, thats if you can physically get it to fit. I don't think any cases are compatible?

Id part out the 1500 and use the proceeds to fix the 800. Heres one in the US https://www.ebay.com/itm/98-KAWASAKI-VN-800-VN800-VULCAN-CARB-CARBURETOR-WB14/352785713163?epid=0&hash=item5223aac80b:g:OuYAAOSw 7AFdeDNu.

Its about $800 USD for a brand new carb assembly.
