The swap has been done just not a direct bolt up . Nothing every is that Easy .
So how handy are you welding and fabricating? Because the motor mounts and exhaust mounts may need different spacing and clearance . If you get the new motor cheap enough and and can do your own fab work you can make just about anything fit.
here is a thread where they discussing swapping to a larger gy6 platform
Unnless you are or know a welder who is good, I would suggest not trusting your life(and others) to the quality of a weld made by an inexperienced welder. I know my 'booger welds' will handle the loads they are expected to carry(15kg - 30 lb), but they are not suspension or steering related. Without a lot, no LOT more experience and training, I would not consider welding up mounts to allow a typical 124/150cc to be installed in a nominally 50cc scooter or cycle. I know my limits, and value the integrity of my headbone.(not to mention content thereof)
If you want to install a BBK into a GY6, either limit your displacement to the 72cc afforded by a 47mm bore, or be aware that you will have vibration and connecting rod or bearing problems likely sooner rather than later if you decide on larger components. Going to an actual 125/150 machine makes a lot more sense. My experience, limited on these machines as it is, reports that going much over 40mph becomes uncomfortable. By that speed the imbalance of the tires and vibration of the engine/transmission make comfortable riding difficult. I did 45, or at least the speedo was pegged, and traffic didn't seem to be climbing up my posterior, and I was definitely feeling the rush. I am old, so have had more than my share of 'experiences', survived to date, and am not ready to 'push it' just to go fast on a cheap scooter, especially one that I was learning how to weld as I did the construction. Does not seem like a good idea. If you want faster, do a trade-in, or sell yours, and find a replacement that was originally designed for the speed and loads expected with the higher horsepower. If you want to be 'thrilled' every day, thrilled that you got home in one piece, go for it, but be aware of the things you will encounter before investing time and money in a project that may be sort of a disappointment when you are done. My two pennies worth. tom
It's not how hard you work, it's how much you get done. simplificate & add lightness
