Default Re: Harbor Freight 212cc on Motoped Cruzer?

The HF 212 is a good industrial engine. Having sed that it is by no means the equal to a Honda or Yamaha flat single style engine. Even a clone 125cc FS style engine will be better suited to the Motoped format.
It's lighter , smoother , actually has a good transmission , and best of all was designed for that bike...And is a very very reliable long lived engine.
If one was to spend the $$$$ to get a real Honda 110 or 125 cc FS style engine it would probably out run the 212.....Or could be modified to do so very easily by converting from the 22 mm carb to a 26 mm carb and a new pipe.... Ask me how I know.........
Just my 2 cents....
Happy Trails......
