Default #4 Mounting the engine cradle from the donor bike.

The donor bike was a 2001 Katana 600. It's not as fast as a GSXR, but after some tuning, it should be pretty quick. I lined up and mounted the engine cradle, and test fit the motor. Also, some parts arrived, so I could test fit the 1.25" axle. I will have to come up with something clever to allow me to tighten the chain as it stretches. All the Gixxer kart builds I've seen so far, only have an idler, which can break when you decelerate into a corner. I know it will cost me in some weight, but I'm going to build in a method of tightening that huge #50 drive chain.
