Default purchasing engine

I dont have much no how about automotives but am working on a mini chopper. I want to buy an engine for it and dont know if after this I will have to buy a carb, clutch, etc or if I just need to mount it and wire it. Also, which one would you prefer for my mini chopper.

You might find a diagram on Google , if you can't find it let me know the color of your wires and if they match mine or not I can post some pics of mine for you.

Oh and as far as the engine in the link you posted I really don't think you will find one any better for the money anyway with electric start , I mean it is a complete engine just needs wired up and some fuel and should fire right up. Or in most cases it should anyway.

Engine #1 will take some modification but it will work if it fits in place without major issues. You will have to add a jackshaft and a centrifugal clutch different chain and sprocket. Or flip the rear wheel and change the brakes and things to work without a jackshaft. , and would definitely run better then the 49cc engine JMO. Just wanted to add I have never used either of the engine choices you posted just do know engine#2 is supposed to be a direct fit replacement engine for the chopper. I always have used briggs or predator engines like engine #1 you posted. But
Engine #2 is or should be a direct fit it come with everything carb, clutch and things just will need wired up. But it won't perform like the 6.5 hp engine. I don't know how much you weigh and things but the little engine pulled me I weigh 210lbs.
It will really depend on your funds and know how on this. I'm getting ready to put a 6.5hp on one for a friend of mine.
Hope all this helps.

Yeah I think he has 2 or 3 threads started on his chopper. They probably need to be combined.

... & now there's one

Fra, please keep all relevant posts to the one thread, multiple threads doesn't mean you will receive more attention... not positive attention, anyway...

Another thing I think I left out , if you go with the engine #1 in the links you posted , you will need to go to a different sprocket also. You will need to go to like a 35 pitch chain and centrifugal clutch with the same pitch gear on it. IMHO because the chain and sprocket combo there is a very big difference between the two in size. From the 4 stroke and the small 2 stroke 49cc engine.

Does the bike still have the solinoid and rectifier/relay on the frame you will need them with the same amount of pins as your wiring harness to match up and plug in.

Yeah they would work the 2 pin is for the solinoid and the 5 pin is for the light switch I can't see the other wire but if is a 4 pin it goes to the rectifier, but you still have a problem everything you have is a male connection you will have to change the wiring harness ends over to a female ends to plug up to the solinoid and rectifier. So you will need new ends to plug them up .

I'm thinking you have part of the wiring harness missing , if those 3 plugs are all that's there I'm sure you do , you need the solinoid and rectifier and lights and ignition wiring plus if I remember you need another piece to the ignition. I have a feeling this is going to turn into a pretty good job if you have never done this. You Need Google a wiring harness and try to find a wiring diagram for it sometime these little bikes can be a bit testing when working on them. You have to have those parts g or it to get fire and run, I'm sure you can probably bypass things and make it work. Google those 2 things see what you can find on it, make what your doing a lot easier. If you put the wires in the wrong places then you will smoke the new parts and be buying more. JMO

I beleive this is my ignition switch. Also, I found 2 more wires that are both female coming from the ignition switch. The two pin is from the light the five pin is from the right handle bar and the 4 pin is from the left handle bar
