final drive replacement

I have a pulsing noise that I think is coming from my final drive on my 2002 gl1800. I found one on Ebay from a 2012 from a trike conversion. I need to know if this is interchangeable with the drive shaft and everything on the 2002 such as splines and swing arm. My 2002 has 85,000 miles and suddenly started making noise. Gear oil recently changed with Honda gear oil.

You should move this to the tech forum............
As I recall the 2012 F/D is longer and isn't compatible with a 2002

Back to riding after a 30 yr lay off.. Started with a 86 Magna 750 on to a 02 Shadow 1100,99 Magna 750,91 ST1100, finaly a 93 Wing.. and now an 06 1800 Loven Life...
