Predator Engine Adapter Plate & Accessories

 

These Predator Engine Swap parts are intended to speed the process of switching a Kitty Cat from the original 60cc 2-stroke engine to the Harbor Freight Predator 79cc 4-stroke engine. It literally takes about an hour to complete the change over using these products. The linkage kit is specific to the Kitty Cat swap and no other kit in the go-cart market works the same. The only product we don't have available yet to complete a kit is the exhaust. We hope to have a solution in the near future, but don't have any timeframe for it yet.


This kit includes everything needed to make the engine swap except the exhaust pipe itself. I don't have something mass produced yet, but I do have someone working on it. For now the kit includes the following:


  • Aluminum Adjustable Adapter Plate
  • Throttle Linkage Kit
  • Brake Bracket Kit
  • Custom Configured Clutch
  • Silver Pro Chain with Master Link
  • Exhaust Silencer (4" or 7")
  • Exhaust Silencer Clamp
  • Air Filter Adapter
  • Air Filter
  • This kit includes all parts for both the 1972 and 1973-99 installations
  • Detailed Instructions

This adapter plate makes installing the Predator 79cc engine into a Kitty Cat a breeze. Once your old engine is out and you're ready to install the new engine, it takes a matter of minutes to mount this adapter plate onto the Predator engine, then the original Kitty Cat engine plate onto this adapter plate, and install the engine back into the chassis.

This adapter plate is designed with side-to-side slots in the mounting plate to allow for simple adjustment to align the clutch sprocket with the rear driven sprocket.

You'll use the existing slots in the belly pan to adjust the engine forward or backward. This is also how I recommend everyone adjust the chain tension.

 

The instructions are here, and will continue to be updated and refined.

Predator Throttle Linkage Kit for Kitty Cat

  • This linkage kit is specifically made for the Kitty Cat installation. The kit offered by go-cart sellers do not have all the specific parts needed for the Kitty Cat, especially since cart installations don't use the gas tank.
  • This kit includes all parts for both the 1972 and 1973-99 installations.

Predator Brake Bracket Kit

  • This bracket has been designed to work great on the Predator swap to the Kitty Cat and includes all mounting hardware.
  • The existing brake cable mounts through this bracket and allows for tension adjustment of the cable.
  • The brake band for 1973 to 1999 mounts to this bracket and is spaced to hold the band in the correct location around the clutch.
  • This is an easy decision to purchase for anyone swaping the Kitty Cat over to the Predator 79cc engine. You won't be disappointed.

Predator 79cc Clutch with 11 tooth sprocket

  • This clutch is configured to engage at approximate 2300 rpm and with the heavier shoes it will lock up harder than stock or chinese clutches.
  • We've tried several configurations of clutches and this seems to be the best fit for the Predator 79cc engine.

Predator 79cc Clutch - 11 tooth

  • We have tested several clutch configurations and this clutch setup seems to work the best and we've receive the most positive feedback from.
  • The clutch wil engage at approximately 2300 rpm and with heavier shoes it keeps the extra engine torque from slipping the cltuch like the OEM clutch or Chinese clutches do.
  • If you find that the Kitty Cat has trouble taking off after making the swap, ensure the drive train is not too tight. You should be able to use one finger and pull the track forward. If not, you'll need to resolve the tight track/drive train.
$59.95

PREDATOR-11

Predator 79cc Clutch - 12 tooth

  • We have tested several clutch configurations and this clutch setup seems to work the best and we've receive the most positive feedback from.
  • The clutch wil engage at approximately 2300 rpm and with heavier shoes it keeps the extra engine torque from slipping the cltuch like the OEM clutch or Chinese clutches do.

Predator 79cc Chain

  • This clutch is configured to engage at approximate 2300 rpm and with the heavier shoes it will lock up harder than stock or chinese clutches.
  • We've tried several configurations of clutches and this seems to be the best fit for the Predator 79cc engine.

Space Chain - #35, 40" Long w/master

  • You will need about 35" of chain, so this length will work no matter where you place your engine. You may need to resize your chain slightly to fit.
  • Space chain is roughly 8 times stronger than standard #35 chain and this is needed with the extra torque of the Predator engine. Standard will work, but will wear much quicker and increases the likelihood that when the chain does wear it will ruin the sprockets.
$12.95

A06-0031

Silver Pro #35 Chain, 40" w/master

  • This is another great option for chain. Silver Pro is another type of space chain manufactured by another company. The break strength, wear resistance is the same as space chain, but this chain runs more smooth and true right out of the box with less link binding.
$23.95

Predator Exhaust Silencer and Clamp

  • The Silencer (muffler) fits a 1" pipe and you can adjust the length by sliding it up or down the pipe before clamping..
  • The clamp is a high grade part that holds the muffler in place and does not slip. This is NOT a hose clamp.

Exhaust Small 4" Silencer (Muffler) - Just the right size for a Kitty Cat Predator engine conversion

$29.95

Exhaust Large 7" Silencer (Muffler) - This silencer works great on the Kitty Cat too, but takes up more room

Predator Air Filter and Adapter

  • The stock Predator air filter does not fit when the Kitty Cat console is used. Therefore, you need to add an aftermarket air filter to protect the engine. You'll need the filter adapter that mounts to the Predator carburetor, then the air filter can be mounted to the adapter.
