Customer Questions & Answers

Would this engine be suitable for a go kart? What size clutch and key way size would I need as well thanks

Just wanting to know can I hook up a throttle cable and control the rpm's and yes what size would I get as well for the clutch what size would I need to look for ?
Asked by: SnoWhite
I recommend against it. I tried it only to have the kart drive off, up hill, with the parking brake on. The minimum idle speed (2100rpm) is much to high. After working with the support team for a week I was told this was normal and returned the engine.

The description says this engine is available in a tapered shaft. But I don't see where it is available?

Customer Reviews

1 in. 15 HP 420cc OHV Electric Start Horizontal Keyway Shaft Gas Engine is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor clone I chose Lifan because of reviews saying they made some of the best "clone" engines. My idle adjustment didn't work well, the idle was adjustable but not below the factory set 2100RPM. This caused big problems for a go kart. I contacted support several times, was always told they would look into it and call me back (that day) but I never received a call back. It wasn't until I measured the idle speed myself and reported it to the support rep that I was told "that's normal". He suggested that I bend the throttle bracket if I needed a lower idle. To build a "clone" engine and then modify it to remove the possibility of setting a normal idle speed makes no sense. To not report this unusual characteristic in the manual or spec sheet is wrong. I wasted a week tinkering with the engine and waiting for the support team to get back to me only to end up driving 30min to my nearest Home Depot to return it after finally being told this is normal behavior. This is a quality engine, but only for mid to high RPM applications.

I had 2 blow up with in an hour and 11 blow up under 90 days. The kart manufacturer warrantied 3 of them and the rest they just turned there heads. I called Lifan and they did nothing to help either. Buy a Honda and save yourself the headache.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Chipper Engine I replaced a 10HP Briggs & Stratton with this 15HP Lifan. Wow what a difference! It has power to spare and thus far, runs flawlessly. The electric starter makes a big noise when it engages, but otherwise gets the engine going quickly. The recoil starter works fine, but I would not use it except in case of a dead battery because it is difficult for an old geezer like me to pull it. The bolt pattern for mounting the engine was an exact match for my 2006 DR chipper machine, and the clutch fit the shaft perfectly, so installation wasn't a big deal. As for the Owner's Manual, it presents some of the schematics and technical specifications you would expect, but it is written in such a way that parts of it are laughable due to a lack of command of the English language.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this motor for a 48" snowblower that mounts on front of my ATV. Had no idea how it was go... Bought this motor for a 48" snowblower that mounts on front of my ATV. Had no idea how it was going to fit both foundation wise and belt wise off the pulley. Rolled the dice and ended up only having to drill 2 holes into the snowblower engine foundation and the dual belt pulley fit with no adjustments needed. Now for the review... had it delivered to the local store for two reasons, 1. If it showed up damaged I wouldn't need to accept it and also 2. it was free shipping. When I picked it up from the store all was in order and the HD employee was more than helpful and explained to me that I had 30 days to return if unhappy. Once installed the engine started right up and ran fine all I had to do was wait for snow. That came today and the first trial run was flawless. Though it was only 2" of snow this engine gobbled it up with ease, plenty of nads. The only downside was that there were virtually no instructions for hooking up the 12V starter. Other reviews said the same but also said that tech support was good for this problem, however I cannot attest to that for I have not called them yet. Being a D.C. Starter red is (+) and black is (-) so it was not difficult to figure out. Black can connect to any ground bolt and (+) goes to the starter... it's that simple. The wires provided have lugs already attached that hook up to the engine and starter. You not only have to provide a 12 Volt battery source but also whatever you want to hook up to the battery. I used alligator clips, it was simple enough and once the engine has started you can just disconnect the battery and coil the wires. I will say though that even though I have only started this engine a few times i have started it manually and it has started on the first pull... every time... Once we get our first "real" snowstorm I'll update and report how th engine operated under a heavy load. Feeding a 4' snowblower 6"+ of snow will definitely work this engine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product has great features and qualities My friend and i are from Kentucky, we have ATV's and Dirt bikes, and we know what good quality in an engine is. We were thinking, we had this old golf cart frame, a Yamaha G9, and we wanted to upgrade it. We do not like Harbor Freight engines, so we went in to Home Depot one day and bought a Lifan 15 hp 420cc electric start engine. We took this engine home, got the key ignition on and started it and it runs great. So we put it in the golf cart, put on air intake and bypassed the governer, and put a 2 inch receiver and a utility bed on the golf cart and it ran great, we probably had 2,000 pounds on that trailer full of logs, maybe even 3,000, and im telling you now it actually moved probably 5MPH and we were satisfied. The engineers that built this engine did a great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement engine I ordered the Lifan 15hp engine to replace a blown engine on a one-ton asphalt roller. The engine arrived several days sooner than HD estimated. Getting the engine configured with the hydraulic drive was a fairly easy process. Starting it the first time was a little difficult until I realized the oil level had to be covering the 'full' mark on the dipstick. I'm always cautious of overfilling small engines, but if this one is even a bit low it will activate the low-oil shutdown feature. Probably a good safeguard to have, but could be a little tricky in this respect. After figuring this out it was easy to get running with the electric start feature. It's probably had a couple hours of use now and seems to run well and have plenty of power. I run it at about one-third throttle and it powers the roller just fine with the water tank and both drums full of water, putting its weight at just under 2500 pounds. The only drawback to this particular engine is the absence of a charging feature to keep the battery properly charged. The same engine with the charger is available for around $40 more. I still rated this one 'excellent' to give it a fair evaluation, after not having ordered the one with the charger option.
