    Ideas for MSX conversion

    So I have this msx150 and I am thinking of doing a conversion and building the weber engine as a extra for my other MSX.

    I have seen the 4tec conversions and have herd of others trying to do a sho conversion. Are there any other options? Has anyone tried a kawi conversion from a 300?

    I am thinking of doing that but not sure if I want that much trouble. I am surprised no one has tried to put the kawi 310 engine in one of these.

    Kawasaki engine is powerful, fairly large and rather expensive.

    I suspect cost of the big Kawasaki engine itself is the first hurdle. Whether it would physically fit I cannot say.

    I think that big belt driven supercharger hanging off the side of the motor may present fitment issues. If i were to do a conversion i would want a yamaha motor.

    The one I'd like to do would be the Yamaha 1.8 litre N/A version it would be one sweet ride and the most fun you could have on standard fuel. How much extra does the Yamaha motor weigh over the Rotax and while we are at it how does the 310 Kwaka engine weigh in?
