I've never known anyone to swap the whole engine into a Pilot. The 500 conversions I've heard of involve modifying the Pilot bottom end to allow the 500 cylinder to be used with it. I would think it's rather involved.
The usual 'my two cents' disclaimer applies. :)

Well,it's not exactly that easy...ATV Racing does a conversion to allow a 500 cylinder to be used on a pilot lower end...It requires re-locating the cylinder studs,lots of case welding,and port matching....It is somewhat expensive,but does make better torque,and 500 cylinders are easily available....Their conversion price includes the case mods,a cylinder,piston,and a pipe to work on the cylinder...Last time I checked it was somewhere around $3000....

Are you planning on keeping the 500 or interested in selling it now?
You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
