    Well got this motor installed now, I am following there instructions by breaking in the motor. They say to break it in on 3 tanks of fuel. Not sure if I will have the patients to do this. I'm through 1 tank of fuel, I'm running very rich right now. Will get out tommorow and start to lean it out some more. Even being so rich this motor has tonns of bottom end! Cant wait to get it out this weekend.

    Shouldn't we find a Camera first??!!

    Chadster is busy the next 4 weekends, sold the house so he is packing and cleaning, no Cameraman for awhile. :(

    We have so many reviews to do, 3 in the process now.

    I've been wanting to get a reed motor but was not confident until I hear actual testimonials. I am anxious to hear your review and see a video.

    Im wondering if a reeded engine's performance is worth the price.

    If you are racing and you need every last bit of power then reed would be the way to go.
    If you are bashing and reliability and fuel economy count then there are much cheaper engines out there.

    Now that I have started leaning out the motor... still running a little on the rich side. I can say this motor has more then enough bottom end, to the point where I think I need better tires to hook up more. Reliablitlty should not go down any, the motors are ported to bring out the full potentail of the motor. I have lost some fuel economy, but for the price of power. At first I was not too sure about this motor, but now that I've leaned it out some more I'm almost scared of the power.
