    how are you going to fit a motorcycle engine into a watercraft? just wonder.
    Yamaha did that with the mr1 engine , but there is a bunch of modifications they did to make it work. cooling was one , imagine what you are getting into.

    I was thinking cooling could be a problem ,but a motorcycle engine has a chain transmission and itīs located at de side of the engine.
    How do you want to place a coupler and you have to place the engine sideways in the hull.
    If you know to manage that you need to find a prop that will match the engine specs.
    I think itīs nearly impossible or you have to add a paddlewheel to the side of the hull.

    I'm pretty sure it's been tried on here with a Gsxr 1000 motor and will not work. Cooling issue, drive shaft issue, rpm issue, trans issue. Been tried and won't work
