8000 RPM is red line for this engine. The tach I'm using only cost $40 so there it may not be accurate either.
This is a four stroke engine and I don't think It can be rotated because of oil scavenging. I remove the tank from the engine when I fill it so I can get a full tank.
It does great on hills but it goes up pretty slow in such low gears.
You can always double the horsepower by going to the Honda GXH50 which will be a staight bolt up switchover, and retain the same reliability, downside more money invested...............Don
