engine swap

  1. Transalp
    Greetings, I'm hoping someone can shed some light on a little bump in the road I've come across in my build. As the title states I've thrown a NT650 / Bros 650 / Hawk 650 motor in a Transalp frame and my issue is the front cylinder's exhaust port isn't allowing me to get the Hawk's front header...

    Has anybody ever put a Honda 125 eg. Cg 125 engine in a Honda xr80 1987 ? Just wondering if the engine mounts are same/similar ? Is much fabrication needed if any ? Any help appreciated Thanks

    Hay guys, My RD03 engine blew and have to be replaced. I cant find a replacement in South Africa so I was thinking to replace it with a RD04 or07. Is this possible?? Any advise would be appreciated, thanks! Desmond

    My engine sounds like a bearing is getting rough, gearbox output shaft I think. does anyone know if the injection engine fits the early carb versions? I need to swap the engine so I can take my time checking it all out and I need the bike to get to work on. Thanks. Steve.

    The rebuild of my '89 VK TA is continuing slowly, but just to add to the confusion, I may have the chance to obtain a badly crash damaged 650, for not a lot of money. Would the 650 engine fit straight into my frame, and more importantly, is it worth doing ? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Well then, after all the problems I had recently with the engine swap, then the CDI/pulse coils problem, and changing my rear light as it went faulty, and also the full rear end conversion from drum to disk brake system, which included swing arm change, mounting rear master cylinder, as well as...

    As I had a free afternoon I thought I'd make a start on the XR engine swap after it gave out on me just outside of Helmsley at the end of October. One XR up on its newly purchased stand. One replacement engine from a breaker, with guarantee fast running out, must get it in! Remove...

    Gonna be swapping the engine over soon - will be getting oil/filter/exhaust gaskets, have doused all nuts/bolts in wd40. I know about wrapping the frame up to avoid any damage - will be doing with 2 of us so hopefully a skinned knuckle shared is halved and all that - any special tools? Not going...
  17. I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Afternoon all, just thought i'd say hello as i think i might become quite a regular. I've just purchased a CB250RS for whizzing around London on, really enjoying it so far. However, it's not going to remain standard, i'll be creating a flat track/café racer hot rod thing out of it over the...

    I finally isolated where the noise is coming from on my AT this morning. It's coming from the nearside of the top end of the front cylinder, and the sound is a rhythmic knock. I'm assuming I have lateral play on the cam, though I haven't yet tried the trick where you listen to see if the sound...
