Kx100 frame?

Recommended Posts

Well, ive been thinking recently. The frame for the drz is definetly a weak point. Alot of people will weld in supports and gusset their frames to help it out but why dont we try to mount the drz's engine into a kx100 chassis. Obviously there would be alot of custom mounting work for the engine, exhaust, etc but so is there when you upgrade your drz with kx100 parts. I havent bought my kx100 donor yet so if anyone has any thoughts on this idea let me know

DRz engine is very big compared to a KX.  I put one in a KTM 250F frame, and it was bigger than the 250 motor

Thank you, didnt really even think of that. So would you suggest i stick with my original idea of reinforcing the drz frame?

I remember your posts a few months back about your motor build, did you ever get it together?

Are you planning on racing yours?

BBR cradle really doesnt do that much.  I have two, and both are stretched and bent.  Strength relies on the rear, lower mount bolt, which is too long and skinny,  and always bends.  Build a good cradle, and you'll be better off
