Ninja300/400 swap

Winter is coming. My "spare time" this time of year grows exponentially.

LF Ninja 300 or 400 engine/exh/ecu/tb/harness only. I don't expect or want free. No problem paying proper dollar for good $#!t. Just want a good unmolested twin runner at a reasonable price. Please let me know what you have. Cash in hand. If you aren't in Alberta be ready to ship (and know what the shipping costs are) to: Stony Plain, Alberta, Canada T7Z 2W1.

I don't want complete bike. Ideally only: throttle bodies, fuel pump, ecu, relay box, engine, exhaust header.

I know there are some crash write offs out there. They just aren't close to me.
I realize this is a long shot but that's what the internet is for right?

PS: The point of this is to engine swap out the Z125 and then +nitrous.

Woo you're in for a challenge.

I think the question is how high in the chassis can you get it to still give yourself some cornering clearance.

It's going to be fun.......when it's done........I think.

I "borrowed" a set of wrecked cases from our local wrecker to do a bit of eyeballing and size it up. It's going to be mostly a new frame I think.

I found this image to do some curious eyeballing of how that's going to go. The green outline is the 300.

Any idea what the added weight difference is between these engines?

An opposed twin would be really cool, don't think anyone has done one of these.

I wonder if the throttle bodies can straddle the main frame backbone.

Ooof. I can only think of Beemers done this way, and they are all pretty massive. Are there small bore boxer/opposed engine layouts that I'm missing?

Dropped a gear... . . . . . . . . . . ...still here
