Just saw this thread. I make my lifevery simple. I bought an EZGO/Hyundai ignitor with the 5-wire config. Two wires connect to the pulsar. The middle (black) is ground. One goes to the solenoid and the last wire goes to the ignition coil. I make my own harness. Just cost me the price of the EZGO/Hyundai ignitor and 2 yards of wire. Yamaha ignitors are kind of complicated and super expensive.

OK, so can you swap a G8A engine into a G9? Will the engine mounts line up? If so, how does it work if the gas tank and battery is on the opposite sides of the cart? How about the air cleaner? Would it still fit?

Yes you can use a G8 engine. You will need to use the Ignition pickup and flywheel from the G9. Everything else will work just fine, the air box is also the same. Don't worry about the fuel tank and battery.

Ok, I'm new to the cart world, just saying so I dont understand alot. Anyone have any ideas to learn more other than forums? But my question is, I have a TTR 125 and I want to pull that motor and put into a lifted golf cart. Is this possible? It is a Yamaha bike, so I would assume getting a Yamaha cart would be best, or does it not matter? Thanks

Welcome ! I would suggest you going to the "bigblock section" , take a look at the "bike engine" build section. Many members have done what your planning and would be glad to add input to your project.

So I'm trying to swap a g9 motor for a g14. The cart is a g9. What exactly do I need to swap? I have it in but it runs terrible. Sounds like it is out of time.

Sorry it took so long to post. You'l need to take the "rotor" /"flywheel",pick up coil,ignition coil off the G9 engine and install them on the G14 engine. Then everything should "plug In" and have correct spark timeing. Let us know what happens
