because he sells the heavy-duty axle rear hub, I would say they are grubees ?
his install manual has pics from different sites tho (I definitely saw a 'z-box' pic from australia???)

adding a name to his kits just confuses people researching kits tho IMHO

Maybe "Red Bat" refers to an installation tool?

I have a Red Bat here that I bought from a fellow on craigslist.
Haven't done anything with it yet except to rob parts to get/keep my skyhawk going.
It came in the original shipping box... from Luckyearlybird

Your post is the only other time I've seen RED BAT mentioned, FWIW.
Good luck

I bought a Red Bat engine from BGF a while back. I ordered the kit with the chrome tank and it turned out to be from the RB factory. Of the 7 kits that I've bought, the red bat had the best quality of fit and finish. The motor was smoother in vibes and quieter . no rattley sounds from the engine.
Even the way they are packed shows much thought. Their box, with the red bat on it, is considerably smaller than other kits.

it's packed with such care and so tight, with strips of styro ect that nothing can move and nothing can touch anything else, no matter how rough it's handled.

Their tanks have a kinda clunky shape though.

I have a BGF Red Bat engine on my oldest and highest mile bike, 1200+ miles on it now bone stock and still runs like a champ, zero issues with this engine.

Peace, map
