At this point I had been doing research for a few weeks and decided on which parts to go with.
The supporting mods for the original parts would require larger carbs and other supporting mods to make it reliable. Carbs are simple, but I look at them as difficult. Im an EFI and wiring guy.
I would rather hit the go button and… well… go.
My friends were trying to talk me into a streetbike conversion and I kept saying no.
While looking over the carcass at my buddies house we started to realize the quad had a bunch of aftermarket parts on it. Most of which I didn’t care for. A ghetto supertrapp muffler. A hydraulic clutch conversion… the bug hit me.
If I sell off all these crappy parts, and buy gaskets to build one good motor, I could sell the 660 motor and pay for some of the parts I would need for whatever direction I go.
My friends were sending me craigslist ads of other quads and streetbike motors...
I ended up looking as well...peer pressure is a biotch...found a guy parting out his race bikes/trailer etc. He had a spare motor from the previous season and wanted to clear everything out of the garage.
I assembled a stock motor, sold it for $400 within two days and used that money toward this impulse buy of the K7 gsxr 600 FI motor.
I didn’t want to do an R1 motor because I don’t feel that I need that much power on a quad.
Too much is almost enough you say… true story but not a necessity in this case.
Got the motor home and quickly realized there was zero hope of getting the motor to live in the frame without mods.
