    I had the idea a few years ago of putting my GSXR 750 motor in something. Had most of the "issues" figured out (how to couple to shaft, mounting the engine, and how to install a closed loop cooling system using a heat exchanger from a boat) but could not figure out how I would keep the exhaust from melting everything in the hull. Needless to say the project never got off the ground.

    Good luck on yours!! if you get it working make sure to doccument everything for the rest of us. Would definatly be cool to see!

    I am having the same problem trying to figure out the best way to route the header pipes, the way the engine will have to mount doesnt leave much room for heat dispersion between the header and the hull.
