been thinking of swapping my motor to a 4wheeler

I have a 2001 kx 250.
Ive always wanted a 2 stroke 250 dirtbike after riding one back in 98.
so, i got one this year finally.
well, for me(I'm 5'6" 160 lbs), the bike is a little on the big side.
I can tippy toe and kick start it.
Ive thought about lowering the bike, but at the same time dont want to mess with the geometry to much.

So, why not put this motor and trans on a 4wheeler with a blown motor?

Or I was thinking of putting it on an adult size yerfdog gokart.

I have the go kart already(needs tons of work), but dont have a 4wheeler with chain drive(i have an old 87 kawasaki 300 thats shaft driven).

has anyone done a swap like i'm talking about? is there a better 4wheeler to use over another(as far as placement for the chain goes).
I have very good fab skills, and am up to whatever it takes(financially speaking).

Or, should i sell the bike and just get a 4wheeler?

I had considered it.
But I ride a raptor 700R as well.

let me ask this......would this motor/tranny combo fit in a smaller framed/sized bike?
I had a 98 honda 200 4 stroke years ago, and that bike fit me well.

It would probably require some modifications. If your looking for a quad, you can usually find a honda tax pretty cheap.
