Can anyone here that might of put an rd  engine into a 250 ninja give me a close height dimension of the kaw motor?   Contemplating a minibike swap.  Thanks

i did it, but i put a suzuki gt250 engine in - or rather a gt350 engine with 64mm liners. had to build a cradle for it, as the ninja engine is attached top front and lower rear. but it was easy enough  :cool:
cheers, gil.

Nice job, it looks like it came that way from the factory.
