 Post subject: rucksters fatty gy6 swap questions
PostPosted: Sat Nov 22, 2014 1:30 pm 
hello all,
first time posting on this forum

i have a few questions about the rucksters gy6 swap

i went to install my rucksters fatty gy6 swap last night and cant find any info on line about issues with this swap
i got the motor mount, motor and harness in and done.
my questions are that the swap didn't include a spacer for the carb so when installed it sits dangerously close to the left side frame. i called rucksters and was able to talk to them before they closed and said many people just flip the mount and run the carb at a weird angle. i will be ordering the spacer this week

however there is a long 10 inch or so wire off the new carb with a connector on the end, where does that go to on the harness?

also the kit included a throttle cable, when i install the cable on the twist grip i cant get it on the carb side and visa versa with the install.

any suggestions will be great
thank you
steve

Steve,

The connector off the carb is for the auto choke. It's not necessary.
What handle bar set-up are you running? You prob just need a longer cable depending of your set-up.

All in a days work greyduck. Much easier to help someone over the phone rather than messages.
