when i say gearing i mean sprockets and clutch teeth. i would use something about 15:60 to go 25-30mph. the less teeth uo have on the clutch, or more on axle, the slower your max speed and higher your exelleration. i will post some more pics when i have made some progress as my gx200 clone engine is on its way this weekend

this might help both of us. the plate needs to be 1/4 inch thick or 6mm thick, not a bad guess
