I hate you!

Hey that's not your 750 Katana with the two stroke engine project that was on the Katana World Registry facebook site recently?

Great idea! Looks like a lot of work though? Wouldn't it be better to get an 1100 motor? The Katana is long so you'll have a bit of a barge to move around, not a zippy two stroke?

I started with a GSX750S frame I had hanging in the garage - looked around for a suitable donor motor and there was a GT750 motor sat in the corner - will be faster than the 750 diesel that originally powered it Very Happy
Most other motor transplants have already been done - Bandit, Busa, EFE, turbo etc. I do different Very Happy

Indeed - I fear they are going to lynch me at this weekends Stafford Classic show and burn me in public . I really would like to see their "proper" Katana's and make a (long) list of what's not right ..............
