I've heard the Lifan 125 and 138 had backwards kickers that interfered with ATC 70 fenders. Don't know about 110 fenders, but you might have to cut a chunk out of em, so you might as well "race-cut" your fenders too.

Be aware that the increased performance might cause you back injury because you'll be haulin' ass all over the place with a manual clutched 138.

I was wondering about this swap too, I asked a month or so back and noone had any idea. What I did learn from reading is they are based on atc 70 type bottom end, so it would take some mods to make it bolt up....I finally pieced a motor together for my 90 so im good to go till this one takes a crap:lol:

All you'd need are some washers, the ATC 70 bottom end is has slightly skinnier (3.8 instead of 4 inches wide) engine mount loops. The bolt holes line up perfectly though.
