What is the overall dimensions of the ER-6n engine, ie hieght, length, width?

The mounting points aren't important at the moment as the frame can be modified to suit.

I'm thinking about fitting the engine to a aluminium framed YZ450f

Wow, that would be quite the project as well! How confident are you in your/your fabricators ability to mod the aluminum frame?

I will be in Vienna on the 31st and wanted to pick up the Versys engine I had shipped to a friend anyway. I should be able to get you the dimensions then, also plan on putting it on a scale.

At the moment I have no idea if it will work out but if I get the general size of the engine I'll get a better idea. As far as the frame goes, I'm prepared to cut the bottom frame rails out but if it needs to made longer then it becomes too much messing around.

I have the YZ rolling chassis (everything but the engine) and a shed full of spare WR/YZ parts.

Thanks mate.

Keep up a good work. If you manage to make it work my 640 would last me a long time.
I was thinking to put an electric motor with bunch of batteries when my 640 dies.Assuming they come up with REAL batteries(at least 10 times better) by that time.

LucasM,

Check out my hand made scrambler on page 378 of the Beasts area.

Uses a Triumph 765 twin. KYB forks, Showa single rear shock.

Hand made tank, pipes, sidepanels and frame. Does pretty good.

You can scratch all that, I found ya the perfect setup.



This is a home built diesel KLR. I'm using a Yanmar clone 418cc diesel engine, with a Comet 40 series convert/drive. It's both electric and pull start. At this moment, it only has 375 miles on it and still in the break in period. The top speed is about 65MPH with an average of 130MPG. I've run it on bio diesel and regular diesel. Both seem to suit it just fine.

I found it on Dallas Craigslist.
Cool setup I actually like it. Not sure how I'd like a CVT on a D/S bike. I know the Rocon 2wd bike used it.

Small set back unfortunately: The Versys engine never arrived at my friends place, the seller put the wrong address on it and it went back to Germany. I still have the ER-6N so I will try to get some dimensions as far as that's possible with the engine installed, though.

Bad ass project Dick! I wish I had the skills to build my own frame. That engine and gearbox sure is huge compared to the 650 Kawi twin.

65mph top speed? I'd rather stick with a LC4 and push it when it eventually blows up.

SamM is doing something similar on his KLR along with a bunch of other trick parts, he might be interested in seeing this.

That's cool as well! Wonder how much that thing weighs and if the geometry is still ok with the new forks and wheels?

apparently its about 20kg or so lighter than a standard versys, a friend of mine who's a very good rider said it's amazing, it was built by a professional suspension tuner

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"
