Can this work? I have a 490 and a 465 for sale, and the buyer wants to stuff them into his DT360. mostly concerned with his cdi box working, minus the charging coil three wires. I cant tell him either way but I would like these thumpers to get a good home.

Interesting concept for sure if you're talking DT360A twin shock frame & i love projects like that. Things to consider though are your motors have the swinging arm hung off the back of the motor which could be turned into an advantage. Exhaust port on the 360 is straight ahead & 465 & 490 are side port [i think--without looking. I have a 465H & did have a 490K. One thing's for sure--she'd be great at the traffic lights, third gear start--hanging off the front--Nek Minit, flashing lights behind lol.
