Re: Harbor Freight 212cc on Motoped Cruzer?
Ok I get it flat style, in my racing circle we refer to the horizontal Honda or Chinese clones such as the Lifan 125cc as an E22 or simply a Pit Bike engine, where the industrial engines like Harbor Freight 6.5hp or Predator 212cc are commonly referred to as a "GX style" as they are clones of the Honda GX series industrial engines.
As far as weight goes the engines are very close in weight. My Lifan and Piranha E22 engines weigh in around 40lbs where as my Honda GXs, HF clone and Briggs W/F engines are closer to 35-37lb. Let me know which "flat style" engine is nearly half the weight of the HF 212, I'd love to have a 18-20lb engine for my Motoped!
