ATV gixxer Hybrid? anyone build one of these?

boutta throw a gsxr motor into a 400ex frame. anyone ever build a quad like this? what kind of problems did you encounter? im worried about the frame and swingarm not being strong enough to account for almost 8x the amount of power as the stock 400ex motor. im thinking once i get the motor mounted, i will stiffen the frame, and possibly get a new/stronger twin row carrier w/ better bearings, and possibly a stronger axle like durablue or something? im hoping is has hardened splines for the sprocket hub, as i would think i would possibly shear the splines off the stock hub w/ the added power? i plan on lowering the quad and widening it for better street handling. anyone know what a good wheel/tire combo would be for this thing? hopefully something that wont disintegrate @ +130mph

Kings Tire makes some street tires that should hold up to those speeds(key word should) I would run an 18"-19" tire, but that's just me. you will probably want to find a gussett kit for the frame, and have a competent welder put it in. The swingarm and frame should hold then, i know it's been done before. IMO, i would add a new axle for strenth, but i doubt you'll be shearing splines or sprocket teeth too often, you'll never get that much traction.

i went to their website, and couldnt find anything that would fit an atv rim that is a street type tire. all they had for say a 10x5 wheel is knobbies/mud/sand tires. do you know the name of the tire? gusseting the frame is a good idea, im just worried about the swingarm/frame coneection twisting with all the torque, but ive seen quite a few of these hybrids on youtube... i think it should be ok.

thx

i don't think it will ever get enough traction to hurt the swingarm. . .I've jumped 400ex's over 90 foot table tops repeatedly with no problems, i'm sure the quad can hold up to the power.

kart wheels are too small IMO, your gearing ratio would be so jacked up you'd have to start in fifth gear

hossier (how ever you spell it) makes tires that will fit, some DOT some slick.

a gusset kit is a must, lonestar makes a good double row carrier. Durra blue is no the best axle but better than stock. Tighten the out of your rear hub nuts, like 100ftlbs, it will keep them from moving around. The quad is so light it will wheelie before it starts to really stress the frame, or so it seems. Now if you had a wheelie bar and were hauling though the gears that could tweak some stuff.

better make sure you balance those wheels real well! After 100mph on a quad, gets a little wild and it's not a time you want ANYTHING getting out of hand, especially on the street!
