What's your budget?

The first thing to consider when doing an engine swap is, do you have the necessary tools, resources and enginuity to pull it off. You need to swap over not only a motor, but everything that goes with it. You will need to he handy with a welder or know someone who is, and have the necessary means to do other metal fabrication as well. Is it really going to be more benificial to do a swap or should you just fix your existing motor. That being said, I think your best bet would be an early '80's ATC 250R motor or a Blaster motor. Reason being, they are 2-strokes, so they will be smaller and easier to work with and have a better power to weight/size ratio than any 4-stroke that may be in your price range. There is going to be alot less hardware to deal with too. They are both air-cooled, so you don't need to worry about a radiator. The 250R motor will be more powerful in stock form, but there is more parts availability for the Blaster motor, and even though a stock Blaster motor is pretty tame, there is plenty of power potential there so it is a good starting point. Both motors will be smaller and lighter than the Warrior motor, and while the Blaster engine won't be much of a power gain, it has more potential than the Warrior. The 250R motor however, will be a nice boost up from the stock Warrior engine, but parts will be a little harder to find. They are still out there though, plenty of people still run the old air-cooled ATC's, and I have seen some that flat out haul ass. The one thing you will loose is the electric start and reverse, on the plus side of that, you will be ditching a decent amount of weight. The only 4-stroke motor I think you might have a chance of swapping in with your budget is a Honda 400EX motor. It would be a good upgrade, but there are more parts to work with and it would be ALOT more work. Plus, I doubt you could find everything you need in good running shape for $800.

I would go with a big bore kit and a stage one hotcam. The site that Trailblazer mentioned has a decent price on the kit. The big bore stroker kit he mentioned might end up being outside of your budget when it is all said and done. Here is a site that has a 370cc big bore kit and they will do all the machine work too for less than $279. Or, they will do a stock size piston kit with machine work for $169. They will re-work your head, install a cam and set the valvle lash for $160. I would just call them up, tell them what you want and see what they are going to charge. The prices seem good, so I am sure you can wind up with a strong running motor with a decent boost in power and still stay inside your budget. Here is a link to the site.

      Problem: The ATV starts and runs at idle perfectly. But as soon as I open the throttle, the engine starts to slow down until it stops. On the attached video you can hear the sound of how it works: see video below
      Prehistory: there is a Polaris Sportsman 500 1998, which for about 1.5 years stood in repair, including also replacing CDI with one taken from the same ATV. Finally, the vehicles were on wheels, traveled several kilometers and overheated - forgot to fill the antifreeze Came back home in small moves. The next trip started well, but after 10 km there was a feeling of a small drop in power (even as the vehicle got warm completely) but still drives. Next trip - the situation is repeated. The next test of ATV through time and a huge loss of power from the very beginning. The engine sneezes, does not want to go more than 5 mph.

      What has been done: the carburetor has been replaced with a new one (inexpensive, $ 40), a new spark plug, a new ignition coil, the engine head has been removed, the piston is in good condition, valves were corrected - but the problem was definitely not in them.

      Ignition control unit is suspected. Who faced similar? Please help in solving the problem.
      Thanks in advance.

      in this thread, I want to discuss how 4-cycle atv engines work- what the different types are...  how they are set up and which you prefer.  To start off, are the cams on ALL atv 4-strokes powered by a cam chain?  I know that on say a lawn mower or logsplitter engine, the cam is turned by the tappet, pushrods, and valve rockers.  Which is better and why?  Chain-driven cams or pushrod-driven cams?  Are the pushrods just an old version and everything is transforming to chains or the other way around...or not at all?  Just looking for some explanation, history, and downsides/upsides...

      Hi Guys,
      I have a small Sled Dog business and I train up to 14 Huskies pulling a Yamaha Grizzly 550, that is quite a lot of Horse (Dog) power. Sometimes in order to make the ride smoother for Dogs and us we ride in Neutral but on a few occasions I have noticed that the right hand (front) brake seems to loose pressure and does not brake at all. Is there a particular reason for this ? Is it a fault or is it something to do with us riding in neutral, I only use the ATV in this way a few months a year before the snow comes but I am sure I recall the same thing happening last season.
      Any ideas would be greatly appreciated because I am a far way from being a mechanic.....
      Have a super day and thank you all.

      Can I use an old snowblower engine in my 90cc quad? The old one blew up. 
      Thanks for the help.

      Hello All,
      I have a 1999 Yamaha Big Bear 350 4x4 trying to get fixed up so my grandson can go out in the woods with me.
      We have owned it over 10 years.  It got harder to start, until it finally would not.  Replaced the carb.  Right afterwards, it started and ran nicely, but after turning it off, would not restart.  Tonight I used starting fluid and ran, then died.  Adjusted the idle up a little, used more starting fluid and ran great.  It idled about 15 minutes.  Turned it off, and restarted.  Ran it around the yard about 5 minutes.  Turned it off, and would not restart.
      Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
      Thank you.

      Hello everyone,
      Im new here, this is my first post and Im trying to figure out how evrything works on this site so I please let me know if Im doing anything wrong.
      I have a couple Yamaha's but this post is in regards to my 02 Grizzly 660, I have an electrical draw somewhere that is taking my new battery down rather quickly. I have tried to locate any short by checking each circuit but was not able to locate it that way. Im installing a battery cut off switch which brings me to my first question, dont these switches usually go on the Negative terminal?
      My next question is, can anyone tell me if this year and model has any history of electrical shorts that might help me locate the culprit? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
      Finally, Im looking forward to being a member of this site and hopefully helping others as well as learning some things myself, so greetings to all!
      Best wishes to everyone!

      I’m just wondering what year bike i got? it seems the vin has been rubbed off i got it from a auction here in Australia engine starts but seems has a dirty carb wont idle well
      and also has a problem I put it in gear and makes a grinding noise but does not move it the neutral light goes out but then when I change gear it grinds more in the higher gears as well I’m guessing the differential is stuffed so wanting to buy new part for it will start the pull down next week

      this is the first bike I have worked on used to dealing with cars

      I'm having a problem getting a CDI unit that works. The parts list calls for a  4XE-85540-00-00 CDI unit. The one currently on the ATV works but there seems to be a problem with the spark advance curve. It will idle fine an rev. to about 1.5K then  starts bogging down sputtering, popping and basically running poorly. If you can get it above 2200 RPM it runs better. I have ordered and returned about 5 replacement modules that will not work at all. The unit currently on the bike has no part numbers or identification other than a Mitisibuchi logo. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced similar problems with replacement CDI's and if so what is the fix? So far I have not found a replacement CDI that will supply an pulse to the Ignition coil.
