I am selling the Alpha motors too now, I took one apart, I expected to see some parts the same. I did not see anything that was the same as the Go. I do say they are similar in that they are both Taiwan made and price and performance are similar.

Default pipe

One more thing, has any one tried the A Plus 0801 pipe on this motor. I know it is the pipe of choice for the Alpha S852 and the pipe Lutz runs. My friend runs it on his Alpha and I saw some one run it on the EB JS motor and it sounded and ran great on the motors?

I ran the 5 port this weekend at dalton and I have to say I liked the bottom end a lot. This motor so tight I think it might last 15 gallons lol

So the 5 port will be good in a buggy? What pipe are you using ?

Go has had the 0801 pipe out for at least a year, same exact pipe. They run very well on the 7 and 5 port Go's, best pipe we've found for mileage.
You can get the combo with the 0801 pipe also.
