Kit now comes with dual drilled engine holes to allow for drive assembly to be reversed and mounted on front tire. Great for trikes. Also now has a sleek rounded front edge which provides more clearance near the brakes to solve problems with brake interference. Also now has 2 sets of holes for the pivot bolt. Kit is now available unpainted or powder coated with a sharp looking gloss black finish.

Is the rear frame bracket going to be powder coated too?

For now the frame bracket is painted, only the engine housing is powder coated. We will be switching to a zinc plated frame bracket in the near future.

I recently purchased a BMP kit and am very satisfied with it.
I heartily recommend the BMP Friction kit.

Right now I am using the Tanaka PF-4000.
I have a Robin-Subaru EH035 that I am going to put on, and give that a whirl.

I have a Robin-Subaru EH035 on one of my friction drives
It is a great engine but a little underpowered for me

If only BMP offered a 1.5" roller, I bet that would give you the power that you are looking for!

I think I am going to take the stock roller down to some machine shops and get some quotes on making a 1.5" roller.

The Robin Subaru doesn't have the HP to pull a 1.5" roller
The right size for that motor is 1.25" or less so
I am going to upgrade to a more powerful motor.

i'm not positive so DO NOT TAKE THIS AS FACT, but.

i had a conversation in pm with paul before and he said he had banned and refunded certain sponsors money in the past for getting out of line with customers on the forum. it's possible that happened. again i'm not sure this is what happened, just that it is possible.
