if i did a yfz swap that i wated to ride like a normal bike id use a newer gsxr 600 or 1000.
theres alot better aftermarket for the gsxr 1000 than the r1 and the motor will fit better,low profile billit oil pans are available as well

Whatever you expect to spend, double that and that's what you will spend.

I would use an R1 or GSXR motor. Both can be had for under $2000. I'd also start with a Raptor 700 frame, they will accept these motors with FAR less frame mods than a YFZ.

We do these kinda of swaps and the lastest one we built is 1 2007 GSX-R600 in a YFZ450 frame. The entire center section of the frame has to be cut out and redone. Just in parts, we have about 4-5K in it. You also have to have the essential tools to do it....fab table, tube bender, welder, tube notcher, etc. If you havent fabbed before, strongly suggest you practice or have someone build it. Look at our myspace pics for some pics of the process.

my favorite motor for these has been the gsxr 750, my friends run that in a 450r frame and a 1000 in a DS650 frame, we were able to get better times on the 750 in 300ft. but think that may change with some different gearing.

thats the nice thing about a banshee r1 fits with no cutting just new motor mounts and remove from frame when its time for new plugs
