Anyone hear of anyone putting a 700cc raptor motor in a wr 450 frame?....Just for kicks were thinking about it and thought maybe someone heard of anything like this before.

Hill climb anyone?

I guess with creative welding, it would be totally possible.

You can put a big block in a chevette... but 'should' you?

How much does that pig of a motor weigh? Seems like dumping money into the WR motor to increase HP would be a wiser approach all the way around.

There's a guy that converted an R1 into a dirt bike, look on youtube for it. Heavy pig of a bike, and useless but it's been done. Power's useless if you can't manage it.

"gixxerkart" is another thing that was one of those "just because you can, doesn't mean you should" things
