@Michael Eiland I changed your topic title to be a little more descriptive and hopefully get you some replies on this - 2002 Kawasaki Prairie 300 Parts Swap with 2003 Prairie 360

That’s a good question. You will have to study the two side by side and do a comparison on them.  Your going to have to take a look at the engine covers where the drive connects to the front wheels on the engine/tranny.   The years are close enough for a parts match but you never know.   

I had a fourtrax 4x4 that I was rebuilding. I needed some additional parts. Picked up a 2x4 bike one year later model and all my parts matched.  As I was looking at the engine the side cover had the indentations for the front drive shaft connection on the engine but was not a 4x4. My guess is that it’s easier to have a common engine case made and only have to change the covers/drive housing.  The way I seen it I could have used that motor on my 4x4 by putting the side cover and the small drive shaft assembly on the engine from the 4x4 model. 

On your bike the drive shaft has a bolt on drive shaft assembly I guess you would call it the bevel gear housing   That turns the drive shaft and has a small shaft coming out of the back of it.  The 4x4 model has two small drive shafts coming out of it on the front and back  I would think that would be your focus as far as fit up goes. If your engine can accept that drive shaft housing then you would be able to put that motor on the 4x4 frame.
