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.
Thanks for the information. I have a Subaru engine. I was thinking about installing it on my Scooterguy/shift kit. If top speed is only 30 mph on the flats, then I won't waste my time and effort on it.
No offense or disrespect meant.
