Re: HONDA GXH50 or Mitsubishi TLE43
I have a Mitsubishi 2.2hp engine with tuned pipe on my Raleigh girlie cruiser. I like the engine for its quality, smaller size, lighter weight, high rpm potential and parts availability. Some gopeds use the Mits or its clone, so you have some high performance options there.
The Honda is just as well built with quality as the Mits. However, it's much heavier and takes a special adaptor($) to connect to standard 76mm clutches. There are much less high-performance options available.
