that will be a tough one.

why don't you do a transplant? I think thats a steel frame, easy to add motor mounts...

Do a cycle salvage yard search on google. I'm sure the mt pleasant bike yard would have one in michigan. But there should be some other places close to you.

Re: YZ490

I may be able to find you something. The engine main cases from any of the 490's will fit in your frame, but there are differences in the top end stuff from year to year like carb, pipe and head arrangements you will have to watch. I used to post here alot but stopped for a couple years or so. Anyway, I may be able to help and can definitely help with some parts and advice on tuning, so if you want to reply or send me a private message I'll get back to you. Bob
