Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frank06 Great engine with electric start but no wiring diagram
The engine I have is powering a small airboat or airjon. It works great and the only issues I've had is to wire up the starter panel because it has no wiring diagram. But I finally got it installed and it works great! I also would reccomend from posts on forums to remove the back plate to put more gasket maker before firing the engine up. The cheaper chinese gaskets sometimes to not seal well and cause oil leakage. Simple $6 fix and vrooom vrooom you're set! I would buy this motor again and again it's awesome even at max rpm which is what I run it at all the time after a good break-in!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Initial impressions favorable
The engine arrived in only a few days and in good condition. The electrical control panel was not installed and the instructions did not cover it's assembly. However it was fairly intuitive if you know engine electrical systems. I added a quart of oil, a little gas and turned the key and it fired right up. It seems a well made engine and there were no leaks or smoke of any kind. Compared to the 13hp engine it is modeled after that sells at $785 it's a great bargain.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by thefunk good motor for the price
The motor appears to be very well made, especially for the price. The electric start controls, however, are obviously a poorly thought out add-on, and since most of the connectors were incorrectly installed they all had to be replaced. Also the "dash" for the key does not fit the motor and required some inventive shimming. Still, less than half the cost of a Honda...would recommend but only if you know a thing or 2 about fixing wiring.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BBBCATCH1 Very easy motor to work with,great features !!
We put this motor on Club Car Carryall using a 200 rpm cintrifical clutch. The set up was a little tedius,but it all came together and made a great gas cart. After a few trial and error set ups we finally got the cluth and rear pully matched up and this thing really moves. The power this motor puts out is great.Thanks Again for a great motor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dadof7kids Lifan 15hp with electric start
Installed this Lifan 15hp w/ electric start on a custom racing go kart. All of the electric conections were taken apart and soldered professionally. Remote kill switch was also installed. With all of that said the motor would die when taking turns to right or left. After taking the entire fuel system and electrical apart I noticed how well this motor was built and designed even though it was copied from another MFG they mad e afew upgrades. In the end it was the oil switch on the side of the block that has a yellow wire from it. The motor has to be at the oil fuel high level indicator if you expect to keep the motor running unless you keep your motor level for your application. Save yourself a lot of time and fill the oil up to the upper level indicator. We are very inpressed with the motor performance and have not had any problems from it except the pull cord handle ealisy came off the cord. We fixed it so no way that can happen again. Oh forgot to mention the battery will not chage from this engine. The output hot lead is not enought to trickle charge anything.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bob1 Better than expected
I put this on a 7"x42' grain auger to transfer fertilizer. The 15hp Lifan has plenty of power and runs well. Wiring up the starter was the only challenging part. I would buy it again.
