    Default 2cyl motors

    I'm looking for a two cylinder motor, one thats simple, no trans, in a V configuration with a simple output shaft (like a little bridge & stratton 5 hp motor). I was thinking a harley motor would be perfect but i dont know much about these and i hear they are way off balanced and being i've never ridden one i'm wondering if there's somthing else out there i can use. I have a limited about of space thats why i'm looking for one thats simple.

    This looks perfect to me, but again it's a harley motor and i'm unsure.. I need somthing that puts down at least 60hp

    Legend cars run inline four 1200 cc motorcycle engines.

    I'm curious what your application is. Most motorcycle manufacturers have produced a v-twin engine. Does it have to be a four stroke? Two strokes are very compact and powerful too.

    You need a 2 stroke jetskii engine to make that thing work decent. Your talking about using a axial flow pump which will want a pipey 2 stroke motor in front of it.

    One area you might have issues with is the driveline. You really sahould use a kawi pump with a kawi motor or sea doo pump with seaa doo motor or you will be making all kinds of custom parts.

    I would yellow page Motor bike salvage yards in your area

    I saw your other thread on the boat your converting and it looks like a fun project

    I think you need to find the RPM operation of that PUmp then look for a motor that matches

    Looks like you are tight on space . so i think you thinking right on the V-twin I see you have a pic of HD I bet one of the asian V-drives be cheaper

    Yep, just put in the motor that was designed to be in front of that pump and it will work. You try and stick a V-twin in front of that thing and you will be dissapointed I bet.

    The race series you are talking about are Bandeleros.

    But built by the same company though, 600 Racing located in Vegas.

    Easy 150 HP. Based off a SuperJet GP701 motor.

    You don't want a Seadoo 2 stroke motor, they make a good pump though.

    Not to mention the weight, a Harley motor in front of a jet ski pump?

    No doubt, dissapoitment before you even get out of the no wake zone.

    Here is what the crank looks like.

    You don't really need all this expense though, you could pick up used twin cylinder jet ski motors pretty easily. Probably out of the same hull you find a good pump in.
