Can you flip the rear axel so the rear sprocket will be on the right?

Ummmmmmm... NO cause the front sprocket will still be on the left. :lol:
Lol but what if you turn the engine around like that one banshee? Then youd need to figure out how to get it to run backwards!?!?!
Do you see and advantage to a right side drive?

Im following, the sprocket on the engine would be towards the oil tank so you wouldnt be able to run it to the axle sprocket in normal configuration

Im looking as i mentioned before in another thread that i will be putting a R1 engine in my raptor.

On the 2000-2001 R1 the front sprocket on the engine is on the right side...does flipping the rear axel make sense now?

ok now it makes sence! I dont see why it wouldnt work try it before you put that engine in to see if it does work before you spend the time putting an engine in and then having to make an axle that fits!

Are you sure about the R1 front sprocket being on the right side? Every R1 that I have ever seen since they started building them in 1998 has the drivetrain on the left side of the bike.

I agree, every R1 I've ever seen has the drivetrain on the left hand side. I even just did a search for pics of the 2000 and 2001 like you said and they are on the left like normal. There aren't many bikes out there with it on the right

I was looking at a complete R1 engine on ebay and found 2. One of them was a 2000 and the other a 2003. I compared both pics and I couldn't see the drive train on one of them so i figured its on the right side. :shrug: and the other that i could see was on the left.

I looked at both pics side by side from each engine to make sure that i was looking at the engine correctly for which end goes forward on the frame. One of the engines came with a radiator aswell and used that engine to determine which end goes forward.
