OK, just picked a new Honda toy and I'm already thinking of ways to make it faster... I would be without a reverse but I'm thinking a 650R motor would open it up some...use a Reklus auto clutch, that would keep things some-what simple...just need to figure a way to link the motor to the drivetrain...add one of those electric start kits that are ugly and hard to find...

A 750 Kawasaki V force engine and driveline would make that buggy haul the mail!!

I have a KFX700 sitting in the garage...FST 700 kit installed, plus 6 swing arm, Elka suspension, oil cooler, and a freshly powder coated frame... Thinking about selling it because I don't ride it much.

V-Force rear end wouldn't work...SRA. I would go with a Brute rear end with the IRS...problem is with that idea is there just isn't enough room behind the driver for all the Kaw motor/drivetrain/suspension without adding some length to the frame...My thoughts are to run the belt drive down to Honda rear end but I need to look closer to see if that's even possible.

He He - Usually Modette monitors my tire wear . Take note off to the right of the picture a brand new spankin D606. I will show a pic from the rear once it is all together. No problems with the mud guard or silencer I got some inspiration from a commercially available product on that part.

Let's see some failure evidence, sounds like a common issue.... do you have some pics?

Heck, maybe I should rebuild the whole frame?

YEah! Me too. I remember when they came out. Huge improvement over the older odysseys, much better suspension and a 400cc 2stroker with a centrifugal clutch ...wrist straps to keep from ripping your arms off in a roll-over etc...making me want to find one too. Always were very rare around these parts as I recall. Not sure I've ever even seen one in person, just a few odysseys here and there over the years.

I've seen them around. 6k new back in the day. I bought a Blaster for $1800 OTD in '88 instead.
