    Kymco kpipe 155z engine transplant attempt

    No idea. I know t bolt usa has frames that you can buy and build your own bike but I have no idea how much trouble it would be to get a bike like that street legal.

    Or you could just get a pitster pro x5 and get it street legal. I think braap makes a grom clone with the daytona 190.

    The kpipe would be a monster with a Daytona 190cc engine and light rider.

    Rear shock was crap and snapped leavingthe spring held in place by pressure keeping me from wrecking. Expect to do a some grinding and massaging to get everything to fit. Mounts are the same but engine case was different so one side needed a small amount of mount friended off.

    It's a fun bike, feels really fast on back roads but slow on Four lanes but has a decent cruising speed at rather low rpms that eats up the miles when you need it. This is a raising he'll on back roads and downtown kind of bike.

    Replacing rear shock with longer dirt bike shock and lowering bracketts .

    You can see I had to grind off much of the unused third front mount to get the large 26mm pwk flipside to fit. I left enough to use if I get another engine down the road with the third Chinese mount.I will go with a 170 or 190 when I wear this engine out. The kymco frame and swingarm are great, electronics and wiring good, wheels adequate, brakes adequate, suspension total crap.

    Thanks tbolt. Like I said I need an exhaust either xr50 or klx110 type that I can mount with out to much trouble. I was looking at the side shot that goes underneath the engine. Was wondering about performance and noise. I want it to sound good but not to loud. Would such a short header hurt performance?
  14. I have a kymco kpipe 125 and I think it has the honda crf type engine and mounting brackets. The stock engine is weak 7 hp and I'm already having problems with it. Its still under warranty but I want to just go ahead and drop a higher performance engine in there. I'm hoping the 155z ho complete engine kit from pitster pro will bolt on as it appears to have the same type of engine mounts. I went ahead and pulled the trigger and ordered the 155z complete engine kit with honda crf 50/70 exhaust adapter. I'm looking for an exhaust either klx 110 type or crf 50 type that will bolt on to my bike. I'm thinking the crf type will fit better because it looks like it mounts lower like the exhaust i have know. any input will be greatly appreciated. I like the honda grom and kawasaki 125 z aftermarket exhaust but Im not sure they are compatible. would I need the entire footpeg subframe assembly from grom or 125z to bolt exhuast to?
