KX-65 to Honda Four Stroke Build

Sometimes bad luck turns into good luck. This little gem found its way to the garage last night. Thanks for the hookup Hondarider77.

Stay tune!

Oh yes, we are in the market for the various parts.

both the 85 and the 65 would be hard to fit a fourstroke motor into.

several folks have taken the honda 85 2 stroke and put the kitted crf 100 motor in.
One company even produced a mod kit to do it with.
I bought a honda 85 thinking I would do that with it, it still sits in my shop.
There were two that used to run TMGP not sure if it they still are or not.

Those two stroke cylinders are short.

There is a TMGP father and son team who have Honda engines in their KX-65ís.

Sweet Jeeezus, the more we research the less appetite I have for all the fab work.

The Miller family just might have to do something we have been against. I always said no to two strokes, but that is the only thing that makes economical sense for this build.

A co-worker of mine here at Cycle Shack has an '08 KX 65 he is parting out. Everything is there except for the front end. The rest is all there. I think he only wants $200 for the rest of it if your interested. Good luck with the build. The motor would need to be rebuilt. it's tired.

I think I have an expansion chamber and maybe a pipe for a kx65. Maybe a carb.
