I am looking to use a motor from a 1998 vmax 600 to make a go kart. All i have is the engine, coil pack, and carbs. I am trying to get spark but i dont quite understand how it works. The engine has two plugs coming out. One plug has 6 wires the other plug has 2 wires. Will i even be able to get spark?

Ha, i doubt it. You'll probably need a lot more stuff. Like CDI box, wire harness to the ecu computer. Not sure what is all needed but I doubt you'll get much with what you have currently.

Welcome
Um NO!
You will need the rest of the sled!
Many have done this or golf cart.

You will need, all of the wire harness to go from motor to CDI and the kill/ignition.
You need the exhaust and carbs!
You will also need the driven clutch and jack shaft.
The chain case would come in handy to gear it down.

Remember that motor turns 9000 RPM and makes 90 hp!

Are there any chain driven clutches i could put on the shaft for the snowmobile?

also, is this harness all i would need to have spark?

Dont see the ignition switch or the coil.

No the clutches are belt driven
You would need to go above a #50 chain to even come close to handling that kinda HP!

Sounds like a go except you can't run it without a belt much less no clutch!
You need to incorporate the Exact distance apart and in line
This is the real power that a snowmobile makes, in the clutches!
You wouldn't get even a light weight chassis to roll till that engine hits 4000rpm and really makes POWER at 8000!
