ive seen a few different suzukis before and some one did a yamaha also.
Go for it Pit.....What's one more yellow bike in the garage.
Check this bad boy out. 2011 yz 360 smoker.
Not for 12 G's!!
Why would anyone pay $12,000 for that when you can buy a GREAT handling aluminum framed YZ 250 for less than $6000???? Makes NO sense to me.
yeah i dont get that either. cant see much of an advantage there. not $6000 worth.
yeah and the funny thing is about it the yamaha guys pointed out that it actually has a motor from 98 in it cause thats the only one you can make a 360 i guess
When it comes time to sell my 2007 RM-Z450 I might do this just for kicks. Sell off the motor, get an RM250 motor and have it stuck in there. Would be cool! Not like I could sell the complete 450 for anything anyway....
I know one guys that did it with a Yamaha and said it handled better but the bike was less stable at speed or something.
You might be able to get out of that whole bike what you can buy a motor for....make one Pit.
Put the Quadzilla 500 motor in it Pit. How bad@$$ would that be? Then when I get my KX500AF done we can start our own class! Actually, not sure I'd ever race it depending on how it handled, etc., but I do plan to convert my '07 into one for my annual dune trip and trail riding.
I know I've been talking about it for a long time, but it will happen....maybe? Have to wait until a get a newer 450 first. Maybe we can get Robin to put a big bore KTM smoker in one of his frames?.....
Anywho, I've seen them put a KX250 two stroke motor in a KX250F frame before. Thinking MPS did it? It's all in the eye of the beholder...and the bank account.
That Yamaha would only make sense if you happened to have a 90's Ohlins/Noleen 360 motor and an aluminum 250F frame just setting around. That YZ250F fuel tank is smaller than the YZ 250 so not much range with a thirsty 360. The only advantage with that chassis and plastic would be easy spark plug changes. Didn't realize that 360 cylinder was so large. Looks like a 500.
here you go yz 490
