Default The New Sikk engines finally arrived

The New Sikk boat engine that have been two years in the making have finally hit our shores. I will have some in a few days and get some pics posted. this engine comes plug and play with mounts 257 carb and linkage. it has a small flywheel like the 260 pum but has a single coil. the cylinder is a completely different layout in the transfers. out of the box, STOCK with a can muffler it has 4.5 hp add a tuned pipe and its at least 5.5 hp. they will sell for $299 nice thing is they are race ready with no mods, just add a pipe.

Now that is some exciting and good news! I wish I had not just bought a 260 now! Will a Zen clutch and pipe bolt right up Larry?

the red plug cap on a real zenoah motor is just that RED

there may be some small things that are different i think the real zenoah red cap will make a better and hotter spark but not enough notice.

other than that they just use red not black

Hi Larry,

Can you confirm if all the bolt patterns are the same for these Sikks as a Zen. Thinking of motor mounts, pipe, and clutch. I am also wanting to use a coupler (Dannys Zenoah coupler) on a couple - any thoughts if the flywheel etc will be a match ?? I am getting my order in early for these !!

shaft tapers are the same, bolt spacing on the drive side is the same as a zen also as sia the exhaust flange.

the red cap really means nothing... this is a single coil set up everything is contained in the one unlike the zen where trhey have a source coil and an ignition coil. this is not a zenoah ignition

So does that mean that the starter side mount from a Zen will not fit the new Sikk? Or have you not tried yet? The starter looks the same in the pics....oh I just realized you don't actually have the engines in your hands yet. Well when you do have one I would like to know about the starter side motor mount.
