It must take a certain kind of person to yank the small and economical 3-horsepower engine from a golf cart and replace it with one from a 2007 Yamaha R1 literbike. For the record, the team behind the transformation did a few dyno passes and managed to record 125-horsepower at the rear wheels. As you might expect, hilarious antics ensued, such as smoking tires and multi-geared wheelies on the dyno, which were then duplicated outside. After viewing the video, we want one, along with a really, really good helmet and full-body armor. Watch the video after the break.

      LoL whats up with the music? A bunch of crazy gear heads and they pick "hey mickey"?

        That's exactly what I said. I was waiting for some rocker riffs to drop and they play a damn cheerleading song for a motorcycle mod galf cart. Makes me embarrassed to say I live in Vegas.

      Fu**king stupid. What a waste of a good engine.

        What a waste of a comment.

        Assuming it was from a wrecked R1 (why else would you spend the money ripping the bike apart), I'd rather see the parts go toward something like this instead of being sold for scrap.

        I, for one, am simply astounded. Not the first time something like this has been done, of course, but the video (minus the music) makes it look like a lot of fun. I would only suggest a better-quality tire choice and perhaps the addition of some extra safety gear.

      I want one in '08 Viper SRT-10 Green. With carbon fiber racing stripes. And a Recaro racing seat. And a sidecar for the ladies...

      That's crazy. Crazy awesome.

      Nice job strapping it down on the dyno. I have a '95 Yamaha G8 cart that I am going to put a 24hp Honda motor in just for puddle jumping.

      These people are insane that's all I have to say!

      I need one of these for runs down to the store to pick up milk and such...

      Milk might fly off into traffic, but who cares...

      I wouldn't want to ride that thing without some tighter seats, a seat belt, helmet, and roll cage, but absolutely insane!

      LOL. I'd love to get me one of those.

      It still won't help your golf game though...
      • 6 Years Ago
      Hmmm, they might want to think about welding a roll cage onto that thing.
