Yz400f Engine Into Alloy 450 Frame

Hi, i was wondering if anyone has any experience in this matter and what oil pump modifications, ie doing away with circulating pump, are needed to convert to a oil sump rather that frame


DRD makes a wet sump conversion kit. If you think that running your engine and trans on the same 700cc or less of oil all day sounds like a good idea, and you really want to use premium oil and change it every single ride, then by all means, proceed.

Frankly, although it is possible, I don't recommend it. By the time you get done, you'll have as much time and money in the swap as if you had simply gone and bought an '06 complete and ready to ride, and it will still be a 400, and it will not be nearly as practical.
