Engine swap 200xc

Recommended Posts

Hi I have a 2006 ktm 200xc. I blew the engine on it. I found a 2008 ktm 250xc engine and I am wondering if the 250 will work on the 200 frame and chassis? Will the mounts line up? Can I use the same carb? Can I use the same wiring harness? Any guidance would be very helpful. Thanks, zane

No, the engine mounts are completely different. Not sure about the wiring harness.

Thanks man. What about a 06 300 xc-w?

Nope, same engine as the 08 300XC.

The 125/150/200 engines from 2003ish - 2015 share the same engine cases. No other engine sizes share mounting points.

I'm pretty sure you'd need an 08+ 200 frame for it to work.  07 and older 200's share a frame with the 125, I think it was 08 that they changed to have the 200 share a frame with the 250/300.

 

How "blown" is the 200 engine?  Wanna sell it???

It needs a cylinder, crankshaft, and piston. I would sell it. Just message me


What If I get a 06 250/300 frame and bolt all the components (subframe, forks, swing arm etc.) From the 200 to the new frame? Will that work?

The cradle will be wrong, it likely wouldn't work.  You'd need an 08?+ frame and engine to go from a 200 to a 250 swap.  I could be wrong on the year, but my research seems to show this.

If I go with the 08+ frame will the tank and subframe fit off The 06 200? and get a 08+ 200/150/125 or a 250/300 frame?
