Eliminator swap

So I have a Kawasaki eliminator 125 and I want to swap in a 250 2 stroke. Thoughts?

Technically illegal anywhere in the US and the Eliminator chassis is crap - unable to handle more power. Better bet is to sell the Eliminator and get whatever else you want.

I'm a big fan of bobbers. I want to bob out the hornet. We'll cut the tail off and add 3" axle extenders. The extenders would be to get on my bosses nerves. Lol I try to get him to stretch his busa with a 200 tire at least but 230 being max. O my b. Bob it out bro. Do it... Do it

You need to replace the sprockets/chain together as a set. Sounds like both bikes have different pitch chains.
