02 motor w/ 04 carb/cdi?

Recommended Posts

no problems it will work just fine. you do know the 02 is not 12:1 unless someone has changed the piston.

yeah what is the 02 compression ratio?

11.25:1

You really want the 04 and up piston.

Yes, your exhaust will fit.

You may need to make a spacer for the frame. I think they changed the cases just a little from 03 to 04 on the bottom mount

Thanks Shawn.

I paid 1425 for the complete motor with Carb and CDI, which I don't need. good deal? I will eventually sell the carb and CDI.

I'll throw a higher compression piston in it when I get it here. I have a 04 with a bad bottom end but solid top end sitting here too.

Motor is in, the 04 CDI had to be changed out for the 02, the 04 ran too lean and backfired (maybe cause of the ignition curve and lower compression piston in the 02?), would only run with the choke on.

Besides that, motor is very clean and runs like a charm.
