Need to Borrow an 03 GSXR 600 for 5 seconds.

I am in the process of building a Gixxer off road buggy.

I need someone to let me borrow their bike for 5 seconds.

I need to get an angle measurement off of the rear engine mounts.

I need this angle so when I mount my motor in my buggy/cart/death mobile, I won't have an issue starving the oil pump. I am not even sure it will be an issue, but if I mount my motor at exactly thye same o as close to the same angle as it is in the bike, I will feel a little better about this.

If anyone can help me I would appreciate it.

I have a straight edge and an angle finder.

I may be able to just go straight off the front, see my hacked up picture for explanation.

If you are close to deer park that would be even better.

I'll see if we have one at work, but I am willing to bet the oil pan gasket surface will be flat, aka zero angle.

Oil pan surface, or front of the block either way I would just like to know what angle it is at so I can replicate it.

I don't want to mount my motor in this buggy then have to jerk it back out after I roast the mains the first 10 minutes it's running.

It's one of the chinese buggies they are hocking on craigslist for 1700.00

I picked up one with a burnt up motor for 200.00. I'm gonna wedge the 600 in there and drive it till it breaks.

Should be fun. I have a buddy with one that has an old air cooled honda nighthawk 650 in it and it screams. It will pull wheelies but he doesn't have much for suspension.

Mine has full suspension.

I am still in the planning process, have buggy, have motor, have skills, but don't have time,

Pics are nice but of no real help, I need to physically drop an angle finder on a flat portion of the motor either front rear or bottom.

I have a motor, but it is not in a bike, sorry. I will measure one when we get one in, and let you know. It' won't be more than a few days! And I did look at a 2001 gsxr1k today, and the oil pan gasket surface was dead flat horizontal.
