    Hey all I'm working on a motor with engine number IP56FMV, in my mediocre knowledge I'm thinking it's a Lifan but want to be certain if anyone can help me out.
    Also for the mods, the reason I'm posting this is mainly because the search function wasn't working which you might want to look at if anyone else is having trouble...?

    Cheers in advance :D

    I may be wrong with this one, but i'm pretty sure your motor is a Lifan 140cc with all-up gearing..

    Yeah that's right, 140cc all-up. Pretty safe to say it's a Lifan then...Lifan with a big score up the cylinder from a missing c-clip allowing the gudgeon pin to find its way out the side of the piston. Awesome...
    I'm thinking for the sake of $300 to just get a 150cc big bore kit, any reasons this would be a bad idea? Is there any reason why the head wouldn't be suitable or something?

    I dont have any experience with the 150cc big bore kits available for the 140 lifans... wouldnt mind having a crack at one though...
    I cant really see any reason why they wouldnt work, as i think the kits on ebay come pretty much with every thing??
    But yeah, why not go the extra step, and get the big bore kit, end up with extra performance, and fix the scored 140 bore problem in one hit...
    The only thing i could think of that may cause an issue, is that the 140 head dome may be too small for the 150 piston.. but than can be bored/honed out anyways...

    Yeah the head diameter was all I could think of...see how I go with some research.
    Hard to find kits on ebay but there are shopfronts selling kits under $300, c/w cylinder, piston, rings, gudgeon pin, c-clips and gaskets. Might be a long-term project as I'm building a house :p but will post on here if it's successful.

    It's not a Lifan 140 ... they have a 55 mm bore x 59 mm stroke , an 80 mm long iron cylinder and a 15 mm pin ... and their engine model # is 1P55FMJ ... It's probably a YX140 which is a Jialing 125 bottom end (57 mm stroke) with a 56 mm bore ... They usually have a 78 or 79 mm long alloy cylinder and a big valve head ... plus a 13 mm gudgeon pin ... In that case a BBK made for a Lifan 140 won't work ...

    You can buy BBK's off this guy ...
