Yes I have everything but the frame. It will work good in a 250r frame because of the low counter shaft placement. I'm just putting a 450r swingarm on a stock frame for drag racing.

I guess what I was asking is...can one be purchased? Is it a complete motor...or is it possible to buy the "kit" and convert an existing motor....

Thanks

You can just buy the gears or gears and cases. $1000 OR $1800.

Mickey has built a handful of custom chain-driven V-Forces. I have no idea how many.

Someone mentioned using a 450R swingarm. Does that swingarm (or does any swingarm) fit the V frame without modification? What's involved in adapting an off-the-shelf swingarm to the V frame?

I have been told (but can't personally verify) that the shaft drive on the generates torque in a way that contributes to the V's tendency to buck in the whoops. It is supposedly similar to the way a car will raise up in the rear when you hold the brakes and hit the gas to do a burnout.

Is there really a noticeable handling benefit to a chain drive?

I'm mainly interested in the ability to be able to change your "gearing"....sprockets. Also much easier to get different lenghts of swingarms

Nothing ever just bolts up. The swingarm will be too far away from the countershaft to work for anything other then a drag bike.

Handling will be improved big time over a shaft quad for the reasons you have stated. Also it will gain you about 100cc of horsepower :eek:

How difficult is it to install the kit in the cases Mickey

Ummm, also after it's altered, can you use the motor in either fashion. Like could you still use it like stock, with the output shaft and regular rear...or after it's altered can you only use it with the sprocket and chain.

Sorry for all the ?????'s just trying to decide on something :retard:
