Default Let's see if this works... 450R in a 250R

SOooooo this will be attempt 3 at this shit!

The links below where said attempts, College and life got in the way. I no longer have the resources i did, so i wont be able to finish it up the way i had wanted. I have a garage, But no tools > hand tools on hand. I can head down to the parents Machine shop on weekends for brackets or custom shit, and borrow a welder etc...

So we will go the quicker route...

2003 CRF450R motor into a pregen Ninja 250! Now lets get some pics up in here

The bike

(i blowed the motor up good in this fucker)

Ill look for better carnage pics, Ate #2 conrod on the freeway, so i ran it till it seized, 3 times, to get off said freeway. Oh and it got a flat rear tire...

The good part! 450R MOTOR dusty from sitting


some CBR exhuast bits i will most likely use


Most likely not going to be used this time around.... The GSXR front end and the VFR400 SSSA... Those i will most likely keep on the Spitfire frame, As reason to finish it some day.


Mods already done on Ninja, GSXR 600 Rear shock, Front forks done up by GP suspension (for the wife's weight though)

HID headlight, and Woodcraft lowered risers

The major ToDo list:
Figure out motor mounting,
Radiator and cooling shit (i have a something somewhere that might work)
Exhaust
Fuel and air (pod filter is a must, will have to rejet...) clean carbs, route fuel lines,

Lets see what we can do!

-Levi

p.s. Previous fails

project "spitfire" and its build off thread 2k10 build off thread

Can i actually finish one? Stuffing a 450R into a 250R

It won't fit. You should just give me the crf motor.

I hope you make it easy to adjust those valves... next top end rebuild go with the Kibblewhite stainless valves

Have a friend who says the same thing every time it gets brought up. You pay shipping?

So, I got the motor up on a jack, and the bike on the rear stand, just to eyeball stuff in (sorry no pics, dark as shit) and the motor mounts can go one of two ways...

Like the 250, use the motor as part of the structure, two mounts up top, and one in the back. (i am worried this would but undesired strain on the motor)

Or like the 450, with either a single or dual hoop that goes front the headtube ish area, back to the swingarm. would be bolt on so you can drop the motor. makes the frame stiff, no real load on motor. but is more complex, and weighs more...

What are youre thoughts?

Will post pics in morning if needed.
