Franz Reichelt had full faith in his homemade parachute suit when he jumped off the Eifel tower.

You might want to go 40 on it now, but after you've driven it at 20 you might change your mind.

Seriously, everything about this is a terrible idea.

Sheesh, in stock form, taken care of with routine oil changes and kept out of the weather, you should EASILY get 2000+ hours of run time.

That's 10,000+ miles of go karting.

When it says 5000 rpm max, that is the limit they've set beyond which it might fly apart from the internal stress.

You can spin it faster than that. How much faster is anyone's guess.

Must have done some tweaking... ZongShen rates the stock engine at 18.8hp (believable for 625cc). I'm curious whether Vegas actually dyno'd one or it's just a guesstimate.

I just double checked, and I had it backwards for a 30 series. Lobe should be resting against the LEFT side of the stop.

Man that great honking one-lunger would be perfect in my Gator build... No need to move the axle back to accommodate the fat twin that I'm using.

It ain't $900 perfect though, that's for sure. ...

Yes sorry, my auto-correct doesn't like the word lobes for whatever reason. I realized and corrected it.

The spring in the driven should be pre-loaded so the lobes or ramps are tight up against...

Something looks wrong with your driven pulley.

Like the lobes have cammed over and aren't resting on the buttons.

Kartfab, that's exactly what they do. Purely calculated based off peak torque.

Duromax sells a generator with a 713cc V twin... I wish they'd sell that as a crate motor. :huh:

Torque converters are great when you spend a lot of time at partial throttle. No clutch slip to worry about, and the variable ratio makes up for not being in the engines power band.
