Well Ive been looking for a few days and I cant find a cheap snowmobile engine anywhere. So i guess I am gonna look for a street bike engine. Also I was thinkin about a Banshee engine, bit i dont know. Any other ideas are greatly appreciated.

I know a kid who put a RM250 motor in his warrior and it ripped. I'm sure a dirtbike motor is alot cheaper than a street bike motor. Probably alot easier to install too.

well considering that the cart probably weights 200lbs alone + a 200lb rider. I dont think that the 35-40hp is gonna cut it. But hey, thats just me

That oddessey hauled your fat ass around back when it had a 10hp motor! A 250cc 2-smoke motor will make it rip, and you can find them anywhere

BAHAHAHAA, bikes only weigh 200 lbs, and you being over 200 wont make a diffrence, and the newer bikes were pushing 50+ horsepower, and honestly a stock banshee motor vs. one of the newer 250 motors, such as 99+ yz250, The 250 would prolly be faster. Now when modded you know which will be faster, but my honest question is, you always complain of having no money, where are you gonna pull the money from to buy a 600 dollar motor?

The ~79-84 Honda odyssey FL250 is a 2 stroke 250cc. I know because I used to have three.

I hope to god that you are using a FL350 with the independent rear suspension. The FL250 with no rear suspension is kidney killer! I wouldn't want anything larger than the stock 250cc motor in one of those unless you plan on sticking to pavement. I used to drive mine on the trails and I hurt bad after 30 minutes.

Anyways get a snowmobile engine so you can stick with the CVT and don't have to **** around with making a drive system. Go check out these sites for good used snomobile engines:

hey...senior douche bag, shut the **** up :) it HAD a 250cc 2-stroke motor stock fagnuts!

And i AM sticking to pavement, or really hard packed dirt/gravel. Im using the FL250 frame. I am going to try to get a street bike motor, but a snowmobile engine is obviously my 2nd choice.
