what is the largest motor someone has put into the FL350 Chassis. reason i ask is that I am going to be swapping out the motor in my CBR1000RR and wanted to know if someone has put on in an odyssey before.

Odessey frame and suspension and brakes can be overpowered by a well built 350 oddy motor.

The brakes will not do well trying to stop a lot more. The tranny will not live behind a ton more of power for long. I know of a good few that tore the tranny out with the barely above stock motor.

The suspension in stock form has trouble handling the bumps at speeds the 350 pushes it.

Not to mention the time it would take and the hacking up of a good frame.

You would miles ahead to sell it to a fl350 guy and buy a girard frame and upgrade from there.

Once you hack it up its worth scrap price for the most part.

Not to mention that the cage is not tough enough to protect you with a lot higher speeds a motor of that size will do.
