Retrofit 2017+ Z650/Ninja650 slipper clutch to Versys

So it is common knowledge that the 2017+ Z650 and Ninja 650 have a factory slipper clutch. Does anyone know if this can be retrofitted onto a Versys? I've seen someone do a retrofit on a FJR (2016+ slipper clutch onto a 2014) and for that bike at least it was nothing more than a simple clutch replacement.

I priced it out on an OEM parts site, if you have to buy the entire clutch assembly plus all its ancillary bits, about $350, less if some of the bits off the V 650 can be reused.

That is a lot better than the $800 a typical slipper clutch costs for the Ninja 650, or $650 for a Rekluse auto-clutch.
