Um, are you sure about this? The Lakota engine is the Bayou engine with the output shaft changed and the cam changed. How can the Mojave and Lakota engines be the same or similar when one is liquid cooled and the other air cooled? They aren't even the same CC's.
I also just went to powersportspro.com and checked part numbers. The pistons are the same part number. The carbs however are not the same p/n. I don't know if a bayou carb would work or not. I'm sure you could make it work since they are the same engine basically but it may take some ingenuity.
Any questions holler at me. I've pretty much had most of my top end torn down and my lakota was so beat up I've done a lot of research on them.
