Has anyone put a cab'd honda 450r engine in a stock ltr frame? if so can you direct me to the posts or post some pictires.
I dont want to have to buy a new frame, i can make all new mounts anf modify the ltr frame.
I plan on building an aluminum tank for this bike if it is possible to fit this engine in there.

reason for this is a long story....

yes but it is alot cheaper to do a carb'd trx engine, and im just wanting more power and more reliability. my ltr engine makes 59 hp and i have to freshen it up every 4 races

If you want more power and reliability, put a raptor 700 motor in that thing. That would be one awesome strong running bike.

i think trx engine is narrower and will fit pretty easy obviously it will need some fab work. i just havnt really ever seen a trx motor last longer then a 06 ltr motor i guess its how its treated. theres drawbacks for both

yes but it most all of the parts for the trx engine are a lot cheaper and that would help me make it to more rounds in the series, i love the way my ltr handles and i have it exactly the way i want it that is why i want the trx engine in my ltr
