I have investigated this for my P410 sedan. Things to consider;

[*] Gearbox - do you intend on using the gearbox from the bike? If yes, you need to consider that there is no reverse with a bike gearbox, so options are to do some expensive machining and stuffing around to mate a gearbox up OR most use a starter motor on the tailshaft to achieve the same. Just understand the limitations of a gearbox that wasn't designed to be moving a lot of weight, and a starter motor that probably isn't to well equipped to rotate a big weight limit either.

[*] Where are you located? You may not legally be able to do the conversion in your state, I haven't found much information on this. There are conflicting opinions, some seem to suggest the bike engine once removed from a bike becomes a "engine", therefore with that thinking as long as the vehicle it came from passed emissions technically there should be no issue achieving engineers. Others suggest you simply cannot put a bike engine in a car, again I haven't found anything to back up this opinion.

[*] Assuming you use the bike gearbox, you'll need an adaptor to convert the gearbox spline to a flange that is compatible with a tailshaft. Apparently some buggy places in the USA sell these for certain bike engines.

[*] To mount the engine you'll have to create some sort of frame, doesn't look too difficult, the ones I have seen seem to use round stainless thick solid bar that goes around most of the engine then mounts to the chassis/crossmember via usual methods.

[*] You'll be making your own extractors most likely.

Check out this guys car for some good details, I love this thing

It isn't a great deal different from doing a normal engine conversion, other than the extra bits mentioned above. Cool things you will get;

- Noise!
- Sequential shifting


Hope that helps.

I don't know the weight of a 1200 ute but I think it is at least 4-5 times heavyer so it wil be not so fast without torque.

Google says around 730kg for a 1200 ute, you make a good point though, especially if the OP plans on taking passengers or is heavy him/herself.

Lol you guys haven't seen videos of bike motored cars before if you think it'll be slow. Once you're out of first gear they hammer. I remember an escort built 15 years ago with a sc28 motor over in europe YouTube it its rad as.

Busa motor with a tune good header system and intake filters and feeds will make 180-220 crank HP without looking at cams. They have plenty of torque just given that the max power comes in it 10500 rpm or 10,000 rpm itll take a bit more under the band to get going then something that makes peak hp at 6000 rpm with same weight. Once its on noise it'll be a rocket and as a motor that's renown for low down torque in a bike with big peak HP its a good candidate.
