TGB motor swap questions
« on: April 16, 2014, 07:41:35 PM »
I recently got a trigger scooter car. The motor is a TGB GE5 50cc. The motor gave up just after purchasing it and there is little information on these vehicles. I am looking to replace the motor with a larger one. I an wondering if anyone knows what motors would swap in in place of the GE5? Has anyone done a Gy6 motor swap on their 50cc TGB bikes? If so did it bolt up easily or was there a lot of modifications to be made? I believe this motor is a long block, but if anyone has information on that as well any and all information is appreciated.

Did you find a replacement engine for your Trigger scooter car? I also have the same vehicle and am looking to swap out an old engine for a new one. Not too easy to fins a TGB GE5 engine.
