    The 02 GTX came with a 951 carberated motor, 787 RFI and the 951 DI. Which model GTX did the motor come out of?

    You will have to swap out the 2002 gtx motor magneto cover(stator cover). The 02 came with dual coils. While the 98 only has one. But as long as its a carb motor it will work. Just swap your mag cover.

    The mag cup needs to be swapped too. The mag cups are different between single and dual coil.

    Thank you guys, DAMN on the motor I just pulled its a carbed, so thats good, BUT the lower side of the case into the stator cover was blown out at where that bearing was, the stator is grey from the debri and alittle rust, it may be good or it may not, I guess I will deal with that latter, now what is a MAG CUP? is that that plastic piece that caped the crank?

    The mag cup is the part bolted to the flywheel with 6 bolts, that the stator fits inside. It is called Magneto Flywheel on the OEM part diagram, number 4.
