That is correct
GY6's are how I roll ;-}
They dont handle 9,500 - 10,000 rpms for extended periods though

Sorry to report that my swap is on hold for a couple weeks. I had to borrow the engine for my daily driver, because I broke an intake valve spring and it messed the head and piston up pretty good http://i732.photobucket.com/albums/ww321/scootinskipp/010-5.jpg http://i732.photobucket.com/albums/ww321...
