z298 pro. possibility of a ninja 300 engine swap?
hey guys I'm in the dilemma of choosing a bike. I'm interested in the z125 pro as a bike. and if I got that bike then I would have a car as back up instead of a 650 as a dd. and full fill my childhood dream and make a hooligan bike/ sleeper
so the speed is a couple kms short of what I would like to run. where I live there is tones of city, but equally if not more highway. so to get past this I would be looking at a bbk, and oil cooler setup to up my speed. I'm looking at getting at least 130-140 km/ph, 80-87mph. but at the cost of everything $3k+ I figured why not pick up a $1k ninja 300 engine off ebay and shoe horn it in, but in my position I can only speculate.
I don't know what type of clearance is under the gas tank since the 300 engine is upright vs the z's lay down. nor am I going to be able to get the bike till next spring. but I have seen a couple groms out there with 300-450cc engine swaps
so for those of you that have the z do you think the 300 is do able? like even with mods it should be cheaper then going all out on a BBK right?
