Interesting How / where do you get a Lifan 5-speed from, is it better (lower RPM at a given speed) ratios than the standard box, and... how much fabrication is required to get it to work?

There is quite a bit of fabrication involved in putting a Lifan engine on a CT90 or CT110. It's not a job that just anyone should take on. Requires some drilling, cutting, wiring, exhaust fabrication, etc..

BTW: You can release the clutch on the auto clutch Honda engines by depressing the shifter and holding it.

There is a bit depending on which cc you chose. The 90/110/120cc series are bolt ins but the 125cc requires work. It's been done and the information how to do it and the engines and parts can be found here,

Lifan also makes the 90/110 series engines with a manual gearbox if you like.
