Re: feeting yamaha xt engine on husaberg 2007 model
definitely an odd direction to go, but whatever floats your boat...
You could save yourself a lot of difficulty by choosing an engine with the output on the right. A lot of Rotax stuff, including the BMW Funduro 650 and Aprilia Pegaso 650 would be your way forward here... BUT these engines are MUCH bigger and heavier than the Husaberg. Not to mention basic practicalities like trying to fit twin carbs where there was only intended to be one. Even the throttle bodies on the injected versions are huge.
Pretty much everything is possible if you have the time, money, skills and patience (or just a sh*t-load of money), but I've got to ask: WHY WOULD YOU EVEN THINK ABOUT DOING THIS??? If the answer is "because I can", go for it! If it's anything different, I humbly suggest it may be better to look for a replacement engine.
