Thumbs up The Chinese Honda Clone Thread

It seems that alot of us are using Chinese Hondas in our carts. I think it would be a good idea to put all the information and other helpful stuff about these engines in this thread as well as questions.
One thing I learned with the help of others on here is how to wire these engines.
For wiring, you
-connect all like colors
-unplug the black wires from each other on the motor and connect them to the ones on the starter box
-put the blade connector on the starter solenoid
-put the stud connector wire on the closest stud of the solenoid to the starter box as well as the positive battery cable
-connect the negative battery cable to any ground

I also will have pictures of how I ran my throttle linkage
My question is how does eveybody run their choke cable. Also, it looks like the choke is labeled wrong I looked inside the carb and when the sticker says the choke is on it is off and vice versa.

Same here on the choke. That caused me alot of confusion as I didn't pay attention until I had already covered it up.

I will check my choke too. I know it hard to start. I have to hold throttle down crank and then bring it to half way. Then she starts.

I have found in the past is that the choke is reversed on many knock off motors
just remember it as:
OFF is blocking the air off (meaning its choked)
ON is allowing normal air flow

I completely removed everything to do with the governer both inside and outside of the motor. I tapped the hole that the governer shaft went through and use it for vac for the fuel pump.

I am still running the governer on the engine. I can go 25mph and that's fine with me. I can pull my waverunner up a really steep hill at about 5mph.

Bordin34,
Did you get the throttle linkage hooked up and working? Got pictures? My 16hp clone came yesterday and I will start to install this weekend. The info here is great.
Thanks,
Bud

yes, I did get it figured out rather easily. I do not have my cart with me, 90 miles away, so I will try to explain it as best I can, if you don't understand just ask for clarification.
What I did was
-Used the stock throttle cable
-1/8" thick L shaped piece of metal about 1" tall and as wide as where it mounts
-It mounts on the cowling under the muffler where it looks like a cable should go
-I drilled a hole in the long end of the L the size of the threaded part of the cable
-Hack-sawed a little slit on the side of the long slot of the L as thick as the cable
-Loosened the 10mm nut on the throttle lever on the engine
-screwed the L onto the engine
-attached the throttle cable like you would on the stock engine
-clearanced the cowling a bit with a screwdriver and hammer, very little bit
-took off the gas pedal and make sure WOT and idle was right
probably really confusing I will try to take pictures this weekend and will draw in paint soon.

Yes it does sound confusing, but I will take a another look at it.
Now I am trying to figure out to make the 1" shaft stretch out to fit the 780 clutch that I bought to go with this. The XP16HP engine comes with a 2.75" long shaft, but the Comet clutch needs 4.75" shaft. I just need 2 more inches!
What are you guys doing to lengthen the shaft on the China clones?

Thanks,
Bud
