Project raptor R1000 swap. 700 frame

Ok well i bought this bike all stock a month ago. It's a 2007 raptor 700 SE. there was nothing wrong with it. It ran great but i was looking for more power. so out came the stock 700 motor and it was sold to a member here. so i picked up a 07 R1 motor kit with 6500 miles on it and now the project has started.

07 raptor 700 frame
07 yamaha R1000 motor kit

heres some picture of the progress picture from tonight. i just started cutting the frame tonight to get the motor to fit. i will be building a table and jig to hold the frame and motor this upcoming weekend. let the fun begin.

i want to keep this beast looking stock a possible and just enjoy it when it's all complete.

heres the bike the day i picked it up.


here it is getting ripped down.


bare frame. waiting for parts to show up.


i got the motor into the stock uncut frame but that just wasn't gonna fly. it sit's way to high in the frame.





so we cut the frame tonight and got the motor to fit nice. now i'm waiting to start bending the lower frame rail's to get it all mocked up and back together.



plenty of room for some mini air filter's


Bone stock for now

Nope didn't cut the table or oil pan. thats just how the oil pan's are. they are just low. I ordered a +8 swing arm should be here this week. it's slow going right now just waiting for parts to show up.

What do you mean have fun with the swing arm work?

Just that u will have to work to get the front and rear sprockets lined up. I recommend Don't weld ur motormounts in place and bolt the motor up until u get the rear swinger in and have the rear sprocket on. Otherwise u may and up having to
Break welds and reposition the motor. They have to line up or it will eat ur sprocket and chain alive. Most pe0ple use a yard stick or laser to line them up

I did the same thing too, it doesn't matter if you swing arm is stock length or +10 it's still spaced the same from the axle so you can get your motor set and motor mounts made without having your new swing arm made and put on... save some time while you are waiting for it to be built

yep. i pretty much finished ordering all the part's i'm going to need. it should look like christmas at the end of this week. so after everything show's up it should start to go together pretty quick. we should get all the lower frame welded up tomorrow night. then its motor mount time. i really just enjoy mocking up stuff.

for me deciding how I was going to modify the frame and re brace things was the most difficult, I wanted to make sure everything was done the best way I could do it and not look cheesy.... but once I was able to wrap my head around what I needed to do the fun like you said begin, cutting, grinding and welding.

what size and type of tubing are you using?? are you MIG or TIG welding it??

What are you doing for the rear shock?
