Default Honda GXH 50 Engine

I ask the member that posted a picture of his bike with the Honda GXH 50 engine to please post a picture again. I would like to ask some questions as I am considering installing one on my trike. Thanks

I believe I was the one who posted the Honda. I do not have one mounted on my bike. I plan on using a 4-stroke on my next build. I dont know too much about this motor and was asking if anybody has used it.
You cant beat the reliability of a Honda and that is the big reason I would like to use this motor.
I found this motor at northerntool.com
I'm sure they will have this motor else where and maybe cheaper then northern tools but I have not had time to look for a better deal.

2.5hp
Wt. 19lbs
For use in high-rpm applications 7800 RPM max
shaft 5/8" x 1 1/4"
Approx base mount 4.4" X 2.1"
Flange mount bolt circle 4.17"
Recoil start
Oil Alert
cast iron cyclinder

Someone posted a picture of a bike with the engine installed. I need to know the height without the tank as the space is limited in the place I want to install it. You may check with David at Staton-Inc.com. He has kits with the engine and clutch and seems very nice and willing to answer questions and his price was less than most other people.

Hi Big Joe,

I have the HuaSheng clone for the GXH50 in a frame mount. I don't remember seeing any Honda setups here. Four stroke frame mounts are not too popular yet. As far as I know this engine is physically identical to the Honda. The height of my engine from mounting plate to the top of the choke handle is 9.75". It is 9.5" to the top of the valve cover. These pix might be useful.

Small Engine Warehouse: GXH50QHA - Honda Engine 2 5hp Horizontal 5 8 x 1 1 4 Shaft Muffler no tank

The link above is a great price on a real Honda GXH50 without the stock gas tank, which makes it Ideal for frame mounting. You will still need to get an install kit. They can be had at Bicycle Engines, Motorized Bicycles, Bicycle Motors, Motored Bikes: 2-Stroke & 4-Stroke Kits! They also have the Grubee clone of the Honda with the install kit at a good price as well.
