Bought a Diablo 502 and the motor was bad so I thought why not put a Honda in there. Reliable and fun to drive without the worries of a 50yo hirth. So here it is. And btw I am no altering any of the oem on the machine. Need to make new handle bars yet so the hood closes correctly.

I'd love to see some pics of the finished product and any mods you had to make to squeeze that thing in. I'd thought about repowering one with a Predator, which they're all just clones of Hondas, if I ever got a second one.

used a honda gx390. I bent up new bars and did a tube motor mount which mounts from the bottom instead of the top but decided to plasma cut a new torsion box motor mount which I am working on now so rebuild is on again. will post pics again as I get more progress. I scratched the electric fuel pump in lieu of a pulse pump but still have electric start. We are suppose to get some snow starting in a hour but not enough to play in.
