you CAN do anything.. How much money do you want to spend...

There was a guy on e-bay selling a 99 750 I think it was, with a 1K motor in it..

Do you have any plans for the motor mounts?? I would love to do this but I dont have the time and money just yet... So I thought I could start with the mounts if you have plans for them...

THanks..

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Sorry... I didn't draw up any plans... I just kinda started by measuring to see exactly where the 750 motor sat in the frame, jacking the motor up into the frame, lined up the sprockets and removed material from the motor at the lower mount so it would fit in the original mount on the frame. Bolted it in at the bottom, then proceeded to get the motor at the correct angle so the air box would line up with the ram air in the frame and from there I built the other mounts to fit the mounting holes in the frame and motor. It took a bit of frigging around but it turned out well.

She's a fuelly daddy!

and GSXR-freak if you were to put out some kits, I have no doubt that they would sell well, I know that there is alot of wrecked 1k's out there and alot of SRAD lovers hungry for more power!
