If you want some help with throttle linkage, read steps 47-51 of my instructable to see how I did it.

Also wanted to mention that the governor in the predator engines is there more to prevent damage to your yard machinery than to your engine. Imagine a rototiller running at 6500 rpm. I have built several predator bikes and regularly take them up to almost 7000 rpm with no issues.

I'd love to see pics of your build btw.
