Predator 212 on x1 pocket bike

I have a x1 pocket bike and I want to know if it’s possible to swap in a predator engine into an x1. I’ve seen it done on cateyes and want to know if anyone has done it to a x1.

It's not easy or feasable without upgrading the suspension and the brakes but it can be done and unless suspension and brake mods are met will result in building a hairy deathtrap that won't be easy to control.

My neighbor down the street tryed it and spent mass time and money doing a predator engine swap in a pocket bike that ended up with it just cracking all the welds then when you fix it it just cracks again next to the new weld it didnt last very long pocket bikes never designed for that kind of torque....

Faster then a speeding E Revo

The X1 X2 X3 X6 and X8 have pretty strong frames....


Weak points are the front forks , rear shock and rear swingarm pivot mount area.........


By the time hes done researching what will fit with the least amount of fabwork and spending mucho dinero plus the time doing the fabwork to make that X1 handle and stop descently he can put the same amount of $$ into a 125cc pitbike and have way more fun alot faster.......
