Here are a couple photos of the electric starter I installed on my Honda Gx200. There is also a photo of the install instructions and a photo of the wire diagram that I found on line. Once I had the shroud and flywheel removed I found that there were mounting locations for the starter and the stator. The mounting holes needed to be tapped out to 6mm. The bores were already sized to 5mm to accept the 6mm tap. I took me 10 minutes to tap the holes and it worked out great. Next project....battery box and wiring of the swithc etc.
Here is a link to all (239) of my build photos over the last year http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cyclekart/photos/album/829909920/pic/list

Dennis,

Where did you get the kit to do the conversion? I looks like a nice clean job and I like your battery box.

Thanks.
Nathan

Thanks Dennis. Seeing this makes me wonder how others are starting their karts. The body style of my target car is a tourer like the one I attached, and I'm putting a piece of canvas over the engine area to look like it's covering the roof. I can then just unsnap it and use the recoil on the side of the motor. Someday it would be great to do electric, though.

I think I also saw a picture of someone, maybe the Stevenson's, who used a cordless drill to spin the motor over. I wish there was a way to make it crank start from the front, but I don't think that can happen.

Dennis, do you have a "rectifier" in between your charging coil to the battery? I just realized that my wire that's coming from my recharging coil isn't hooked up to anything and therefore it's not recharging the battery. But I don't remember a rectifier included in the kit that I got. So I'm looking online to see if I can find a rectifier for the GX200, but haven't found one yet

I found this one http://www.gopowersports.com/regulator-rectifier-for-5-6-5-hp-engines/
Which is a whole lot better than the Honda ones for $120, I just hope it works ok
