Street bike in a LT250r?
« on: May 28, 2014, 12:59:34 pm »
Seems as if most street bike hybrids are in the zilla frame.  Anyone have any luck with a 1987+ 250 frame?

Have a zx600 engine and a 250  frame sitting here...... (Y)

if you can do it go for it  (Y) (Y) (Y) (Y)
maybe bc its a larger frame so less chopping???
i wouldnt use a zilla frame, always cracking with a stock engine. add a larger engine with more power. not something i would do.

Go for it!!!  What year ZX6?  Fuel Injected?!

I chose the Zilla for 2 reasons.  Main reason is I love the Zilla.  Second is the size.  More room to work with.   Frame is good without all that vibration going on!!!!  I have some pics of a couple LT250's with an 1100's in them I will post...

It is a 1996 or 1997 alum frame zx600r. I need to check the vin to be sure.  Seems to be compact enough to fit. Carbed.

Any issues with floats?  Running 4 carbs you'd think things could stick in choppy terrain.
