I believe at least 2-2.5 inches long.If longer you can play with engine mounting and spacers behind the clutch for alighnment.Good luck.It's worth it.

You really need to set it in there unless someone has done one. I put a clone in a Yami G9 and the carb is very close to the rear shock. Need to put the clutch as close to the block as you can on those to fit some kind of intake on the carb. Given the clone the carb sticks out the side and V twins don't.

I'd think it would be easier to put a v twin in any day, I just did a 16hp clone and it was some work to plumb it because the carb is way at the rear of the cart and barely fits a G9. However the clone 16hp is dirt cheap, and there are all kinds of performance parts for it. It seems to run well now that I hogged the jet way out, certainly more power than the stock 9hp would ever do. Counting parts we must be ~$475 on total cost, plus we have a welder/etc in the shop. Lots of time to figure it out, but very cheap even a stock rebuilt G9 engine is $650 last I checked the dealer here....but not much work to bolt back in. I figured around $400 for bored rebuild myself on the stock engine or something like that. Now I have a brand new engine with near twice the HP for not much more cost. Well I will once I do mine this cart is family's.
