    Kasea Explorer Repower Project
    #1
    Talking
    So i recently picked up a 2004 Kasea explorer 250 from a guy. i really liked the frame because i was planning on making my own but this worked out better . the only problem i'm facing now is wht to do with the rear end seems how the tranny is junk and 250cc is not enough power for me . so the stock cv's are 22 spline and i need to come up with a way to mount a diff or spool in there.the only problem with this buggy is that i've found that there isn't any info at all on them. so any help would be awesome!!!!!

    Not sure about the CV/Spline compatibility question, but I dug this little bit of YT inspiration where someone stuck a 583 rotax in one..

    A quad motor with reverse warrior 350 Honda 400x would be nice. Simple spool center, reverse, and be able to keep rest of driveline. Much more motor is gonna be a pain. Brakes to small wheel bearings. Shocks cv'. And then there the question of the cage itself.

    I am getting one of these this weekend. It is missing the clutch nut but other than that runs and drives fine as is but definitively want more power (<--- see name) out of it. I was thinking of doing a snowmobile swap so then you still have the centrifucal (sp?) style clutch setup and I could use the shocks off the snowmobile for better suspension travel.

    I am in the same boat, i am having a hard time finding much out about these things.

    Keep me updated on your project as I will post up here with anything I find. thanks.

    Wow, never heard of these before. Looks A LOT like a Honda Pilot buggy

    What do these run price-wise?
