[attachment=50546]Here it is, my 1979 Kawasaki Drifter 340 project. Motor is a 440 from a Sno-Jet SST. Runs good, needs a windshield, tach, choke cable, and a left ski. Anybody else with drifters post your pics.[attachment=50543] [attachment=50551]

That's a clean looking Drifter! Very Nice!

Pat- Try a google on "Image Enterprises"- Bob is a great guy and always has or will find the hard to find Kawasaki goodies.

While I gotcha- My buddy and I are working on putting a 78 440 drifter motor into an 80 chassis. The darned exhaust won't line up and when we shift the motor over to line it up it throws the clutch alignment way off. Did you run into any problems when you did your swap? Do you have any suggestions on how to make it fit?
Thanks

My motor was swapped when I bought the sled. Make sure the motor and clutch are lined up good first. You may have to drill a new hole through the bellypan for your exhaust if your motor is a yamaha like mine. The exhaust will rest kind of funny on the original mount. Post some pictures if you can. Good luck.
