    Welcome to MBN b-boy! Congratulations on your ST2 build too. You must be one of the first with that powerplant in a buggy - an obvious choice for trail and woods cars. *

    Can you offer any guidelines or tips for anyone else thinking of using the same powerplant?

    Looks liek a good build. Using the raptor engine makes more sense than a streetbike engine. That's one of the reasons I abandoned mine. The engine had to be above the rear carrier, which is an awkward position. I added a foot to the area between the seat aand the rear carrier, and the engine fit, but the buggy was a foot too long. I considered usign my 400ex engine, but that wouldn't do in the sand. My barracuda is a tight fit, but it is shorter than the st2, and there doesn't have to be a chain tensioner. How do you tension yours?

    i didnt put a chain tensioner yet cause i'll probably be able to put shims under my engine support to tighten my chain as it gains loose. if it doesnt work good i'll have to install one. one thing i like about this motor is that the chain can go downward there is nothing in the way so i didnt have to use a jackshaft

    yeah, that is nice. On the gsxr, you'd need the extender from belmore I believe, and the machining, which would be around 500. BTW, are you near the badland facility?
