It would be perfect but you haven't tried it? :huh:

A note on SuperTrapps: they are one of the few ways to get a universal USFS-approved spark arrester. The rub is that they don't flow well until...

I was trying to wrangle a sealed drum of nitro that wouldn't cost me anything but the 300mi drive to pick it up. Unfortunately the ownership is contested and it's probably not going to happen. It's...

I wouldn't remove the governor, only adjust it to 3600 if necessary.

I had one once and wish I still did. You can kinda tell by looking at it if you could make it work on a kart, right?

It's going to have at least a 1" shaft and a large mounting pattern, possibly...

What voltage does the camera need?

I'd find out what kind of current it pulls first. Constantly transmitting video over WiFi is going to use a lot of juice. It would help a lot if the camera has...

None. With a stock rod and flywheel, all the heavy springs will do is make the engine easier to blow up.

I think fuel pooling will be an issue with a plenum between the turbo and engine. The Hansen kart supercharger kit used a plenum that had a very unique shape, I assume to prevent fuel problems. You...

It sounds like there is still air in the system. Try taking the caliper off and raising it above the master cylinder when bleeding. That's a pretty common thing to do with bike brakes.

What do you mean they aren't working well? Spongy feel, good feel with poor stopping, etc?



Do you mean "new" as in brand-new, or new as in "used, but new to you?"

Silencer(muffler), no, but if you want an expansion chamber(pipe) that fits in a kart, then I'd say yes.

There aren't any used ECUs to be found for less than $700? Was there ever a carbureted older version of the ATV?

Unless you replace the ECU with an ignition controller of some kind, you will lose...

How many watts do you anticipate from the panel? It would take a pretty large one to deliver even 100W, which is 0.9% of that motor's capacity.

Do you plan to charge an onboard battery while also...

The one with four bolts on the head looks like an '89+ Suzuki RM80. The one with five head bolts appears to be a '90s Honda CR125 and is missing at least part of the power valve linkage.

I *think* the pickup might work better on the rear of the engine. The crankshaft and is going to be sweeping oil away from the front one.

I'm all for gathering data, but why test the governor gear with no weights? I can't think of a reason to use the gear without them and it's more work than just removing the whole thing. :confused:

It is going to burn a lot of oil with the draw-though carburetor. Vacuum is going to pull it past the compressor seal when the throttle is not fully open.
