does anyone know of a site thats dedicated to quads with sport bike swaps? i bought a DS650 for $500 with a fked bottom end and want to swap in an engine from a sport bike.. i had a zx9r engine lined up but it sold just before i was going to get it :mad: i more or less just need to know what they are doing on the DS to switch the sprocket to the other side.. it looks like the swing arm can be flipped with relative ease but i cant find anything on it.. thanks

Talk to Torkjunky (aka Barry) on this forum. He installed a Gixxer 750 motor into a DS650 a few years ago. I've seen pics and it looks awesome. I'm sure he can answer a few questions for you.

Happy trails...:)

Got a semi local guy who does street bike conversion quads for a living...

He does the nicest ones I have seen in person.. and they are nasty fast..

It's more fun making our heavy beast fast.

well i found my engine, a smashed yzf1000.. according to everything ive read its supposed to have 145HP, but that seems steep for something that old.. i had an R1 before and it was rated around that for power.. either way im sure it will have enough.. sofar with engine doner bike and quad im only up to $1000 :D pluss i am talking to a guy that did the same swap so he will give me some pointers.. here is his swap

there is a ds650 on youtube with a cbr1000rr motor in it.. looks pretty cool.. hopefully someday i can find a newer and lighter 1000 or bigger engine with efi to throw in it.. it should be pretty simple once its already had a 4 cyl in there..
