Banshee Project. ANY TIPS?

What's up everyone, I have 2016 Yamaha fz07 that wrecked a year ago. Now I'm trying get away from street bikes and get an atv, that way I have something softer to land on when I'm doing stupid shit lmao. I also have a banshee frame just sitting in my garage so to give my self something to do ever winter I want to build a banshee with a 700cc 2 stroke.
So far I haven't seen this swap online so I hope to get some feedback. I know the fz07 motor has a lot of torque that's why I thought to swap them. Also I'm a welder so if anything needs to be welded or fabricated that's not a big deal. I just want suggestions, would this be a fun project? what should I look out for? What first step should i take? Etc.
Ps I was thinking BANZEE-07 would be a badass name.

ummm isn't the fz07 a 4 stroke engine?
Also, the FZ07 isnt a strong engine, only 74hp and 50 ft-lbs. A basic 4mil banshee engine can make more than this. Plus, the banshee most likely weighs a lot less than the FZ.

Dealership told somewhere between 60-70hp that's also what I've read online. Also have you ever been on a fz07? I was popping wheelies in 3rd gear, fun bike packed with torque. Not to concerned about weight I just want to be able to atleast keep up with 450's and 700's. Stock Raptors do about 50-60 hp but idk how the FZ motor will do in the dirt.
What do you think?

Ya, a 700r is no where close to 60hp, more like 45hp at the crank max. Most are putting down around 35whp.
When you put that fr-07 in a quad, that extra driveshaft weight from the axle and extra wheel, you will notice a drop in power.
Like I said, a basic 4mil banshee will put a massive hurting on the fr-07 engine.
