So i think iv bitten off more than i can chew :( im trying to fit a 2009 bandit 1250 engine into a gsxr 1100 slingshot frame. the problem in the frame is to narrow at the bottom so the engine wont fit. the original frame has a section the removes. my plan is to cut the frame on the other side so that the frame has two sections that can be removed i made a ruff mdf template to show my idea. ill add some pictures to try and explain my idea better.

my question is if i cut the frame would this make it a lot weaker ? also is there a possibility of the frame bending out of shape when the section is cut ?

the red lines show where i was thinking of cutting. ( the mdf is a ruff template)

sorry if this has been covered before i did use the search with no result :(

:LolLolLolLol:


3 things came to mind the moment I saw the pics and your question. First off, the engine is EFI instead of carbs, instantly easier to live with daily if you just want to ride without a second thought about it. Second fact of the swap is that it is water cooled, anybody that has sat on a Bandit 1200 or a GSXR1100 in traffic on a hot day knows why they are called an "oil boiler". And the third thing that really underlines the reasoning for a swap like this, for me at least, is that I've never seen it done before and the resulting machine would be a fantastic rider both daily and as a tool for a hooligan sprint through the backroads as well.




Here on CF we should ask the question to ourselves more often of "why not", rather than just "why". :)
