Righto lads I need to know if an '85 gixer 400 engine would bolt into an '89 gixer 250 frame...
I assume they would have changed slightly to suit the frames etc over the years..
Any ideas ?
i sold a GUY UP YOUR WAY A GSX 400F A LITTLE WHILE AGO HE HAD A 250IMPORTED KAT ,and was going to fit the 400 to the 250 ,probbly not, but you could make it fit
Thanks Pete, but I have a grey import gixer 250 that needs shift forks and a clutch, but I have recently found an '85 gixer 400 which if I'm not mistaken would be a grey import too..... I'm trying to get a look at the 400 with a tape in my hand to measure everything but I thought I'd ask here.
My main concern is the '85 was a slabby style frame whereas the '89 is a twin spar style....
What measurements on the GSXR400 do you want bloke ? I have a frame with a RF600 motor sitting in it atm (RF600 bottom end is just a oil cooled gsx1100 motor cases modded) and slightly larger than the gsxr400 motor but not by alot as far as the cases are concerned.
I don't have the motor anymore (but can take measurments off the frame for you) , It went to yoda but I belive he sold it on to someone else.
Log splitter and some roofing nails and she will fit

The 250 will be sold as soon as it's a runner and I can get the running 400 for a little more than the parts to fix the 250 will cost and I already have someone interested in the 400 as a roller, so I figured it was a win win type of thing if I can get it sorted.
