650r motor in a go-kart.

Postby 2009ninja650 » Sat Nov 26, 2011 4:29 pm

has anyone put this motor in a 2 seater go kart before? if so how did it perform.

otherwise i would like to get a little feedback on any of your thoughts. i will be doing att the things possible to up the performance. port the head. bigger valves. bore if possible. raise the compression. maybe even a turbo sice i will have the room. like a t-25 or something. i dont know yet what i should do. :beer

This is what I imagined:

Search on You Tube and you'll get some videos of other moto engine/go kart conversions.

Why stop at 650cc? 1k is where it's at:

I'd buy one with a regular old 650cc motor, then mod the 650R motor to fit, sell the stock motor. Might want to get it street legal before swapping the motor, lol.

Man there was a sick race kart on the old forum. Can't seem to find it on the net though. Here's a nice one. It's like watching Donkey Kong vs. Toad in Mario Kart, lol.

I have not seen the cart yet, but... I did see a Hayabusa motor dropped into an AWD Mini chasis, I paused for a moment and daydreamed about what it would be like to have TOO much money, to the point where I could involve myself with a ridiculous project like this and lose no sleep at night. I always wanted a Fiero when I was a kid (don't laugh), this is when my father realized I was never going to be a car guru, but now that I'm a wee bit older, I want an AWD Mini-Cooper all sooped up. Equally as retarded.
