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
