Default Re: Harbor Freight 212cc on Motoped Cruzer?

Ok I'll do you know? Not that I disagree. Oh and BTW what is FS style? I'm not familiar with that term.
I build race bikes.....And have for 40 years .....

An fs is short for flat style ( slang ) . The engine is actually known as a GX.
They come in Honda CT's , Crf's , XL's XR's as well as many clones , pocket bikes and ATV's. And of course the Motoped .....

Literally tons of HP parts and tech available for these engines.

They have been the standard of the industry for small displacement bikes since the 1950's.

Parts are readily available nearly anywhere.

Nearly half the weight of the HF 212.

Was designed as a motorcycle engine , not a lawn mower engine............

These engines also have quite an extensive racing resume...
Happy Trails......
