rotax F800 twin swap?
« on: May 06, 2017, 01:44:36 PM »
Power comparisons to inline 4s set aside, (not much to compare.) has anyone ever ever pondered the idea of using one of these engines for a swap? 

I have a spare chassis that ive been thinking about using to do a swap.  I guess my main reason for considering this engine is it makes about 85hp and would prob be fairly cost effective considering what it would cost to make our single cyl engine produce similar.  It would obviously still require fab work to the frame to transplant, but seems possible it could be a good fit.

big fan of rotax engines and think it'd be cool keeping things rotax. I would probably use twin carbs to keep things simple.

Should be a good fit. If you are going to use it as a trail machine you want a motor with low to mid range power band. Here are a few photos of my gsxr 1000  [sold]
