I was posting this out of mischief and wonderment... is it possible (w/ fabrication, and welding of course) to put a XR650R engine into a CRF450R frame??? I have access to both and was wondering if it could be done...(most likely I would try but messing up a CRF450R rolling chassis would be dumb and not being able to use it would suck,...but...) has anyone seen it, or heard of it for that matter, I was going to use it for street holliganism, and such...:bike:

I think someone on here posted under satans supermoto has done this , I know I have seen it done but don't know any specs about the swaps.

if you have the parts, then its really easy to find out.
get out a measuring tape, piece of paper, and a pencil...

measure, measure measure. will the head clear the frame rails? will there be room for the header? how far off is the chain offset? etc...

thats the ONLY way to know. if YOU are doing it, then YOU need to be the one to measure.



all that said... im fairly sure it will fit... you may have to redo the whole lower cradle to fit it right, but it'll still fit when you're done.
sounds like a good idea for a street motard.
