Wow! Prices sure have gone up on those!
They were about $125 less last year.

To answer your question, yes they will work in a CT90 with some slight modifications. They will drop right in a CT200 (the older Trail 90).

Hugemoth would be someone to ask, since he has experience with a few of the Lifans.

The Yahoo group is a good source of info too, as well as Dr. ATV.

I'm building a CT200 with a Lifan 140 right now, completely from a big pile of spare parts from different bikes. I'll post a build report soon.

Missed that post.

Yes, it will fit as well as any of the horizontal Lifan engines. That's not to say it's an easy change for someone without the proper tools or mechanical aptitude.

The engine in the eBay ad has minimal electrical output that will not power lights and charge battery for street use. For use on a street legal bike you will need to install a higher capacity stator and flywheel as well as a rectifier/regulator. Figure an additional $100 - $150.

Clean looking old machine! You're going to need ear plugs.

Here's a perfect candidate for a lifan swap.

Just trying to find a good home for my abandoned project.

Thanks.

Does anyone know where I can get a lock washer that will fit the nut that holds the centrifugal oil slinger on my 140 lifan? My motor never had one, and the nut's come loose twice now. The first time it happened I even used red loctite, and it still managed to back off.
I'm sure I could source an oem honda one, but I'm not sure which models had the same size nut... I know there were at least 2 different sizes.

On another note, after I tightened everything back together the other day, I took my ct200 for it's first off road excursion. I thought I may have killed her when I found myself stalled in a mud puddle over a foot deep (just up to the carb, mind you). After sloshing through it back to dry dirt, she started back up first kick! I love this bike.

I have put Beveled washers on these. I got them from Tbolt usa. I Just called and told him the Size of shaft I wanted it to slip over and he sent me 2.

They worked fine but next time I will Peen them in 4 spots on the outer face near the threads once it's on and tourqed like I have done in the past. That keeps them on just fine even in the High revving pit bike engines.

Vertical chinese 150/200 for xl125s

Spent a little time searching the net and wondering if anyone has experience putting a vertical Chinese engine in a 1985 XL125s. These were Brazilian made 2 valve Honda's. Picked one up for a 100 bucks with a silver dollar size hole in the piston from the intake valve. Thought the clone engine would be the cheapest route to a cool bike with e start and power. I will try and get a photo up.

Anyone know what the base jet sizes should be for a 110cc clone motor and a PZ19 carb?

I think the main jet should be a 75. Not sure about the pilot jet.

Check out this thread and forum. It goes into some detail on the PZ19 carb.

Update on Lifan 200

Somewhere over 50,000 miles on the 200 now and I have been noticing a slight rattle coming from the clutch side of the engine. Pulled the cover and found the clutch basket is a bit loose on the transmission input shaft splines. The clutch basket splines are aluminum and the transmission shaft is hardened steel. Ordered a complete clutch assembly new for $39. Also found the oil pump chain is stretched (actually worn at the pins) so I'll replace it along with the sprockets for a total of $20. Neither of these things would actually break soon but I like a quiet engine.
