Mounted the GX50 Honda on my Blackwell cruiser
today. The GX50 has a kill wire but no kill switch. I
also discovered it comes without throttle hardware,
or the throttle brass barrel. Took one off another
motor and connected it all up, with a throttle
cable. I'm ready to start it up, maybe tomorrow if
it doesn't rain.
Started the GX50 today for the first time. Started in
1-2 pulls, very easy starting. I was impressed by how
quick and smooth the throttle response is. Seems
smoother than my robin 35cc engine. Should be
an excellent FD engine, maybe the best to date. Just
need more gas supply, the supplied tank is too
Mike, I think I found the perfect tank and it's a big one for a long ride. It's the only tank that is plug n play out of the box. Only issue is location. I'm thinking on the channel same side as motor near the seat or on the other side but then the fuel lines will need to loop over the channel. Ace hardware will carry any spacers or hardware needed, at least 4 bolts not 6. Lil pricey but it will look good and should work perfectly.
Condition is New. Tank mounts and hardware available upon request for complete easy hook up and adaption to your Goped. Single barb optional. Tanks have been leak tested tor 24hrs. Standard 1/8" fuel lines required for installation.
I decided to take the easy route to more gas
storage. I bought the 750ml fuel bottle, and
will attached to the bike with a $7.00 clip
from Walmart. The published fuel consumption
for the GX50 at 7,000 rpm is 0.54 liters per hour.
The engine tank holds 0.63 liters for just over
an hour at full throttle, so an additional 0.75
liters will give me easily over 2 hours of
travel at full throttle, actually more like
2.5 hours. I'll be ok.
