Well I picked up a bike to swap the motor into mine.

Its an 89 klr250. The bike is pretty ratted out, but the motor starts right up, and runs strong.
Its a kick start, four valve, water cooled motor with a six speed that makes 28HP.

Looks like an almost built-in too, the mounts are almost identical, the hardest part will probably be deciding how to hang the radiators.

Pics to follow tomorrow when the project begins.

I'll check ebay for these?

What about oem stock tw200 footpegs, i found them cheaper than IMS. Anybody try those? Are they the same dimensions as the IMS.

Here is the IMS website: www.imsproducts.com (Super Stock series)

Since you would be ordering pegs for a TW 200, They should be the same as your BW 350, the only minor difference has to do with the return spring and the way it mounts, but is fairly self explanatory once you compare the two side by side.

so the these are wider than the stock TW200 pegs? the reason i ask, is that i'll be placing a order with a OEM supplier and i would save on shipping by dealing with one company.

Three weeks would allow Cliff to save $30/week and have money left over for shipping.

If we tell him that they are bling and not safety or performance related, he will start saving now.

well, I got the bikes stripped down, fought the overly-complicated wiring on the donor bike down to just the essentials, and got to the first test fit.

the engine is just a little too long to slide right in.

not un-doable, but more work than I thought initially.

Break out the grinder, you'll have that engine fitting in no time.

well, I want to try and do this without modifying the bike too much.

and unfortunately my welder just quit, so some care will have to be taken with what is cut.

anyway time for some pics!

the frame, unencumbered of anything to make it go:



the old, dead, motor:



the new motor, in all its glory!



the mess of wiring removed from the donor to get rid of all the non-essential functions:



and finally, the carcass of the KLR:



work will resume tomorrow, I am hoping to have the darn thing running by saturday morning so I can take it down to Homer and go tear up the beach!

also, the tank fell and broke, the whole top came off.

luckily the donor bike has a tank I can use(its metal, so no cracking issues) but it will be really ugly.
hoping I can find a more elegant looking tank to slam on it (the donor tank is off an XT650)

No, I don't belive that the IMS pegs are any wider than the stock TW 200 pegs, just made from a more exotic material, read: More expensive. I am not sure how much stock TW 200 pegs are, but would be interested to know.

I'm happy to say 60bucks for stock vs 79 for IMS. Are u sure the 2x3" ims are the same as the stock pegs?

well, I got the new motor to fit into the frame!







very minimal cutting, just the hoop that the skidplate hooks to and the lower engine mounting tabs.
the rest of the "fitting" was accomplished by spreading the frame just a little with a highlift jack.

now the new motor sits nicely in the frame.
this will change the head angle a little, but only a few degrees (I only spread the frame about an inch) and if that ends up being a big deal I can always put longer shocks in the rear end.
although since I have a larger tire in the back, this may bring me back to stock head angle(or close anyway)

now I just need to finalize the mounts and put it back together.
