    A lot of the newer bikes have a smaller triangle, I have seen rack or side mount engines on them.

    Find another guy to give you another used bike.

    I mean, seriously, what kind of help do you think you're gonna get? Maybe someone has a spare engine shrinking machine they could lend you?

    Or maybe there is a pill your frame can take to enlarge it?

    Yes, I am.

    But that doesn't change the situation you're in. If the engine doesn't fit into your frame, then you need a different frame.

    And, without pictures, or at least a much better description of your frame so we can see why it doesn't fit, you're unlikely to get any help.

    Motor mounts can be altered, intakes and exhausts can be re-routed, and there may be ways to make it fit.

    But not all bikes are suitable for motors. And I was sarcastically pointing that out.

    You can buy an offset intake that puts your carb by the seat post.

    Scroll to the bottom of the forum page, there you'll find the reply box to type your post. Next to the blue post reply tab is the tab to upload a file, after clicking upload file find the picture you want to add to the post, click upload and wait till it completely uploads then click post. The picture below is a screen shot of the tabs. Screenshot_2019-05-30-20-50-35.png
