Yfz 450...r1 Swap!!!

I seen r1 and r6 motors dropped into banshee's and raptors on youtube,I just got a 2004 yfz 450 with a blown motor and I also found a 2002 R1 fuel injected bike at a salvage place for $1500,I'm sure I can get it to work,has anyone seen this done to a yfz 450?Thanks.

DUDE DO IT!

EDIT: I saw a video where someone did this and I am pretty sure it was in a yfz 450

that would be a sweet bike but not pratical for anything othe than hill climbs and mabe dune ridding. Just extend the swingarm and your off to the hills.

that would be a wheely machine, maybe take a while to get used to the power to wait ration and learn how to keep the front wheel down

wont it be kind of wide, sticking out of both sides? it would be pretty sick

im pretty sure thats an official hill cimb bike... like these guys bikes:

and this is the banshee r1...he smokes off a whole set of tires just by letting of the damn clutch!!! (well not quite, but close :) )

a guy here on tt did it with a 1000cc yamaha motor, it may have been an r1, or something a little older, he dropped it into an atc chassis, he did kind of a hack-job, and based off the vid he posted after it wasn't even remotely practical to ride, with a heavier motor, tall gearing and waaaaay too much power to be ridable

but don't get me wrong i am the king of impractical, and unecesarrily expensive bike projects but i don't want to thread-jack

do it! i have built 4 r1 raptors and 2 r1 banshees. way to fun not to do it! what kind of riding do you do?
