    my questin is this will the gebe 76mm kit fit the honda gxs 50 ? :???:

    Well, does the Honda motor have a 76mm clutch? If it does, then all you have to do is specify that when ordering the drive kit.

    yes it will take a 3 shoe 76mm cluch,
    but i still need to know if the kit will fit the gxh 50
    and do they sell the cluch with the kit or do i have to buy it somewhere eles ,
    this motor I think has a larger drive cam than my other motors

    I think it will fit but just call Golden Eagle and ask them, it will only take a minute and they will know for sure.

    ok i spoke to Gebe today and they told me that with the honda they had no real good results (the Honda gxh 50) and that there is more parts to buy that they dont make , So i'm going to go with sub/rob 33.5 kit
    P.S. Paul they said hello!!!!

    I'm glad you found out the correct answer. I don't think you can be dissapointed with the Robin. I have two now, they seem bullet proof reliable and the performance is nice. It is nice to fill up at gas stations with 87 octane.

    What kit does fit the Honda GXH 50

    I like the Honda GXH 50 but who makes a kit for frame-mounting these engines and can I get a gear box for it too? I've been searching the threads for weeks now and I think I'm finding that I can't really have a frame mounted 50cc 4-stroke that isn't Chinese. Rack mounting is my absolutely last resort for the same reason that Ducati don't mount their motor above the rear wheel on their racing bikes. In fact their motor is an integral part of the frame.

    I like the idea of a Honda ghx 50 and the GEBE drive system.

    I asked them if it could be done--they referred to it as a "motorcycle engine" and that it was too powerful. Well isn't their Tanaka powerful?

    True, it has more power and torque; however, if a person goes easy on the throttle and resists the temptation for jack rabbit starts and excessively high speeds it should be OK.

    I have read that Edge or Staton use the Honda 50 and has a clutch fitted to it.

    So if there is a clutch available, would some of the readers please indicate:

    Where a Honda engine with a clutch already mounted can be purchased,

    Can it be fitted to the GEBE system?

    This is very important to me so I would really like some information on the above.

    To start with I can't say that I've ever seen the Honda motor offered with a clutch already fitted. The vendor with consistantly the best prices for the Honda motor is an outfit called Small Engine Wharehouse They have the GXH50 for as little as $210.00 without Tank and with the tank for an additional $50.00 Their shipping charges are very reasonable as well

    Clutches are available from many different vendors. You just need to be sure to match the clutch you buy to the GEBE clutch bell in the GEBE PTO unit.

    You will also need an adapter as the mounting points on the GXH50 are not the same as the GEBE PTO unit. Staton makes such an adapter. I believe it sells for approx $60.00.

    Another option would be the Dax Titan XC 50cc 4-stroke This motor does come with the clutch already mounted and it has a mount that I believe will bolt directly to the GEBE PTO unit. It also sells for under $200.00 and does not require the additional adapter.

    But the thing you have to keep in mind here is that when you go this route you are on your own. You have to do all the research to be sure that everything fits and if need be be able to fabricate any parts or modify existing parts. All guarantees are out the window and void so if it dosen't work you are out of luck. here is a link to extensive thread on adapting a HP 2-stroke engine to the GEBE PTO and rack. It can give you an idea of all the little things that can come up as you try to make the various parts fit together and work smoothly. If you buy a complete kit non of these things need to be delt with.

    The Edge friction kit with the honda gx50 motor doesnt come with a clutch, they claim it has too much torque and eats up most clutches. Their setup uses a lever and cable to raise or lock the roller against the wheel. It works but a clutch would be better. 1 advantage of this system is when the motors raised up your bike is just a bike again.

    I am using 91, what do you think? is that unnecessary?

    BTW that R/S is way stronger than my Honda GX35 4 stroke.
