    I am looking at getting a TAG leopard engine but how can you tell if it’s a MY09 engine or one that’s older than that?  And what exactly is the difference?  Thanks in advance for the help.

    MY09 and newer.


    The easiest way is to look at the clutch cover.  The MY09 has a 3rd bearing built into the clutch cover.

    Can you tell from this pic which style it is?  The only difference i see from your pics above is that the newer models are covering the clutch area more.  Is that what you were talking about?

    Carb is at an angle for the 09′, straight on the 08′.

    They key way to tell is by the carb angle, if it is a MY09 it should be on an angle with the blue pointing towards the side-pod, also the crank will be a rectangular shaped end not a starter nut or nut.  The motor pictured above is a Pre-09 which aren’t as competitive so I hear.
