yes, but you have to rack the rad. as there's no way to access it down low.

You can put the Rad in the stock location because the oil cooler on the 400 mounts right where the Rad does its a simple bolt in job. Iam putting a 400 oil cooler in my 650 and it drops in just like the rad does.. :)

it will cost alittle bit of money to put lets say a 650 in there, you have to buy the motor, wiring harness, header pipe, drive shafts , coils, CDI, and maybe the rectifier as well and i might be missing somthing esle also.

Would the 500 Suzuki fit without having to change as much?

i don't think the 500 swap is any easier. the reason i said to rack the rad is not cause it won't fit, there's a panel in 500 and uo plastic thats lets you access it to add water, the 400 plastic doesn't have that access panel.


you can also do a 435 or 453 BBK, 500 or possibly about stock 650 power from the stock motor.

Just replace the front fenders the have the access panel for the radiator. If you aren't a hardcore mudder there really isn't any need to rack the radiator. You're just losing valuable space.

Yep or cut a hole in the plastic big enough to get to it and get a plug to put back in the hole.. :)

you know the BF 750 you have to remove the front plastic to check the rad fliud level...lol crazy

That's another ingenious design by Kawasaki. When will the manufacturers learn?
