Default Re: Enough Power?

I would guess you will have enough to make that climb, especially if you run a bit larger rear sprocket. Only prob there is the downhill run over-speeding the engine.

IIRC the rule of thumb for an ICE is 10% loss of HP per 1000ft above sea level.

You would probably be best off with a 98cc motor. There's no substitute for cubic inches.
