Yamaha has made the 450F engines available through their karting program for several years...
I am not 100% positive, but I believe this to innaccurate!

I don't know about being afraid of them. I would say they are all worried about trying to keep the weight down.
I've seen CR500 powered shifter carts. You've got to be a little off center to go that fast in something so small! It did do good wheelies though..

there was one of that go kart ripping up the streets and expressway... sure would be some fun to have!

You are both mistaken. I raced shifter karts for years...The YZ-125 engine, sold with different engine numbers and ignition than a YZ-125 ( which I purchased and ran) , the 450F and some YZ-250 engines WERE available in the past...I checked the Yamaha website today and they only show the YZ-85 and KT-100 engines, however, this is a recent change.
The 125 was offered in the past, till demand fell off...but the 450 was never offered as an engine only purchase. Just ask all the guys that had to purchase complete bikes for the motor for their quads. Tdub
