    I'm looking at a kart that a friend is selling, but I want to figure out if the included motor is SCCA legal for JA.

    According to the owner, it's a "newer 6 hp "blue" honda clone"- This doesn't seem like a lot of info to go on. I have two photos that show the motor a bit.

    Can anyone tell me about the legality of this motor?

    Thanks!

    Hey William,

    The clone motors are not legal for JA at all nationally. The only 4-stroke motors legal for JA are the Briggs World Formula and the older Raptor. The WF is the motor to have for 4-stroke. KT100 is still a competitive motor, but the SEB is pushing to make the WF the preferred motor in the coming years.

    Thanks, for the info, Scott. Can WF motors be picked up on the used market? What's a good price?

    Unmodified clones can be run locally in JB. The only change allowed to that motor would be removing or defeating the governor. It's the cheapest motor to run and with an electric start available, it's a very easy motor to test the junior waters.

    JA doesn't have a clone approved for a few reasons. Other motors can be considerably cheaper, go faster, and are more reliable to run than highly modified clones.
