Technically...discussing the Bible....or anything in it is not religious discussion....without faith ...it is simply a book....and as such are printed words that can be applied to anything....

Only when combined with faith does it become an owners manual for life....

Kinda a little bit of a sketchy point....but...if you talk about Barrack Obama...and all you say is his golf game sucks....that's not political....it's a personal observation.....

Sorry chancer, that wasn't meant to offend, the bible is a cool book to read actually
(I hope that much is still allowed to say)
I just wanted to point to some personal highlights of it

So yeah, I was wrong on taking you -barely scratching that topic- as a trigger to make a point, my fault.

PS invalidity of the point is not to be discussed by the rules we just violated
Its Ok. I forgive you I will pray for your soul.

Not to get off subject or anything, has anyone here have any experiences with the hilliard extreme clutches on a bigger engine? I ordered one for a backup clutch for the san diego run.

Oh yeah we were talking about a motorcycle.
I had one it worked just fine. But they can get noisy, its like a clicking clacking sound as it locks up. On a your highway ride it may not be noticable. On my daughters kart riding around the yard constantly on and off the gas it was annoying. At first I thought something was wrong, then I saw some reviews somewhere and other comments here and I think thats just how they are.

That happens around here, you get used to it...

They just need a firm hand to let them know when they're out of line... a bit like a school yard

that means you can run that engine at 12000 rpm? (three times it's stock max rating)

IMPRESSIVE!!

Anywhoo... tell us about the mods you have installed on your engine to achieve that

I'll try to help you. Have you tried talking to the guys at Vegas Carts? Yea they are mostly into golf carts but they may be able to help you in your quest for a bigger carb. Welcome. By the way I thought the only way to get a Predator 420 to do 70 mph was to throw it off the roof of a 10 story building! Have you ever checked out diesel bikes?

Actually vegas carts is where i bought my cam, billet rod, no blow steel headgasket, shaved balancer and chromoly pushrods. Good guys to deal with, however they dont carry larger carbs. Really smart folks when it comes t what you can get out of a 420. However when i told them my planned san diego trip, he said i was brave and he would never attempt that!! He had a perplexed wtf look on his face... priceless. Lol any doubters only need to see pics in the above posts, especially the speedometer one.
