The client will need to complete the following assembly points:
The drive leg needs to have the bracket bolt attached and all grease points lubricated. All collars will need to be aligned.
The customer will need to attach the engine with 4 supplied stainless bolts, 1 throttle cable and nut, add oil-based on Honda manual or oil filler stick (crosshatch) markings depending on engine setup, and adjust the twist throttle for proper idling.
The twist throttle may need to be rotated and positioned so that the cable is not binding, which affects the opening and closing of the throttle position.
The Honda 35cc and 50cc engines will need the black wire from the engine to the black on the kill switch plug adapter and the red wire with the eyelet gets placed under the remaining clutch bolt. Connectors are provided.
The engine trim angle needs to be adjusted to the boat transom. You should be 7-14 degrees trimmed upward so the bow slightly rises and the kayak hull begins to break through the water overcoming the friction. These are water displacement hulls, so they are no speed boats.
The leg height needs to be adjusted so the propeller sits about 2-4 inches below the bottom of the hull waterline, underneath in the non-turbulent water.
BUILD TIME VARIES FROM 30 MINUTES TO AN HOUR
KAYAK BUDDYS performs all of the following points on the left to the clients who want the engine system built for them.
All systems are available in RTR format as of 11/2019
We only charge a flat fee of $100.00 to build, mount, and adjust all systems to the owner's kayak or watercraft, if you bring it to the shop. This even includes the stabilizers and motor mounts.
This is well worth the travel time if you are not sure of your skillset. But, either way, KAYAK BUDDYS can walk you through it over the phone, text, face-time, or Skype. Whatever works for you.
