Need a self starter engine to put on a custom honda xr 500 (dual sport) chasis. should be minimum 350cc and max upto 550cc..
idealy a single or twin cylinder and self start is a must. Please guide what engines can go with it.
My bike had its original 1981 500cc single cylinder engine, rebuilt it on a span of 5 months. And when its done firstly the starter kick is so stiff that you need a JUG full lassi along with tandoori chicken daily to start it, and secondly not having the confidence on engine for longer routes (which was the main idea for building this bike).. the engine is too old and cant stop the wear and tear and oil leaks.
so now looking for some other options in terms of a new and stable engine to make the bike efficient and reliable.
heres the pic of similiar chasis of mine
Last year i tried my best to get a new engine before rebuilding the old one. tried all the dealers at karachi market including saleem and others at ranchor line, got to chacha, nadeem bhai and all others, went to lahore at gunj market but was failed and then rebuild my old engine. So this year after failing at that again looking for a new engine. PLss help and guide in detail.
