There are a lot of squids that total street bikes on a daily. I totaled mine 3 months ago thanks to a deer but would have loved to keep the motor and other stuff. It was a 2008 Buell 1125r. Vtwin with 130 hp and nearly 80ft/lbs at the wheel. Just me but that would be more fun with all that torque. That's why I loved the bike in the first place.

There are more out there than you might think. Most seem to be in the very healthy DS frames but alot also in raptor frames. SRA almost requirement as countershaft sprocket placement seems to be from what I read #1 concern. Our XX's would not be very good candidates as engine placement in the XX would be tough with how close to centerline the countershaft sprocket is. I totally agree with you that you can spend lots of money and lose reliability trying to get the power out of these one lunger's when wrecked rice rockets are a dime a dozen.

Durability of the transmissions....they are not meant for it at all...gearing/trans ratios suck, and they would shake and crack to pieces...fun show bikes...not practical for anything except maybe sand/drag

Just got back from glamis and there out there, but not practicle at all, some would drag up old's then turn off to come down because heating issues/reliability etc...

If you want one build it for drag, most people do not have the know how to, the reason is because many issues vibration can you weld? gearing? tunnig, etc...if you can't do it your self look at spending 2000-3000 just for labor,

I guess it matters who builds it. The one a Busco did at least 20 passes in one hour(everybody wanted some) and then rode the trails with us for another hour. He never shut it off once lol.

I'm with you boost! The builds I have followed on other sites were not purpose built drag bikes but factory looking, very nicely detailed, with an emphasis put on good quality suspension components. These were built to ride all day long comfortably, and still give those high dollar one way Banshee's a run for there money up any hill, anywhere.

I don't understand the thinking that these transmissions that were built for 100 + horsepower will not hold up in the driveline forgiving sand. Cooling is simply a matter of a big enough radiator! VIBRATION???? These inline 4 cylinders are much smoother than our one lunger's, especially once the single cylinder is modified with compression etc....... Personally, if done right as boost stated, I don't see a downside except weight and getting it geared down to trail ride anywhere but the dunes.

Does anybody have links or just point me in the right direction to these motor swaps. I'd like to read through them just cause. I'll never go far as to do it but would like to see what these guys have done. Seems like if you weren't jumping these beast everything would be tits. How bad ass would a cbr1000 powered XX be?!? I know our bikes aren't ideal but I can dream...

You'll have to dig deep into the canam/bombardier section of atvconnection.com to find a couple GSXR 1000 and Hayabusa swaps into DS frames. One screen name I remember was Supersonic. Been a couple years probably since I followed a couple builds on that site. Nomercyracing.org had a couple builds going on in the streetbike/swap section of their site over the past year. Have to dig around a little as I have not followed them in awhile. Every once in awhile you will see one on Ebay. I know supersonic sold one of his Hayabusa powered DS's on there and there was a DSXR 1000 (GSXR 1000 powered DS) that sold for around $12,000 around a year ago.

Its about as fast as a 700xx or a raptor700 for that matter, we tried and it was pretty even but I think the xx has a little more top end for some reason...
