I'd ask you to do me a favor and measure the inside width of the srad frame where the cylinder head goes?
Maybe its worth starting to look out for a blown up srad to get my own project going... looking for ideas anyway.

with a project like this, you get a lot of people posting about it being pointless building a machine with less power than the original. but the point of a fighter is not about speed, but more about image, individuality and uniqueness. hence you see big single motors in a gixxer frame and so on. you also get mega turbo powered monster fighters which are masterpieces of engineering, but power isnt always the aim, otherwise fightering a blade for instance is a pretty stupid thing to do, as removing the plastics and fitting renthals makes the bike just that little bit slower due to wind resistance and so on. my advice would be to go for it. create something different to the usual off the shelf fighter crap that anyone can build. i'm currently looking for a dr650 motor to fit into my gsxr400 frame, simply because that is what i want to build. just get out there and break that mould!!

well, it's not going to happen, bloody engine wont fit in the srad frame, too long with the 50degree tilt on the barrel's, front wheel would foul the cylinder head on full bounce, and that's without the raidiator on, and too wide at the back end to fit between the frame rail's,

i'll have a think about making a straight tube frame (sold my tube bender a few year's ago) a sort of space frame buell kind of thing, we'll see, :confused:
