This motor starts usually starts pretty easy for the first ride and has a ton of power/torque, but whenever I shut the motor off, let it sit for a few minutes, it will not start, no matter what I do. I even received a new carburetor, installed it and the same issue persist.
Very surprised of power and torque this motor has, I worked on cars all my life but have downsized to go karts due to aches and pains, LOL. I put this 225 Performance Engine along with your juggernaut torque converter on and just got it running last night, surprised the heck out of me, it is Snappy. You do have to do some grinding on one of the fins of the mounting plate of the torque converter as it hits the oil fill opening, but all in all very satisfied!
I originally had a Predator 212 Ghost motor, and replaced it with this one. The 212 didn't have any issues, and started first pull right out of the box, and didn't take long to break in. This motor didn't want to start; finally got it started after the 7th pull with the throttle at 100%. Then I had to attempt this a few times and had to adjust the screw on the carburetor after the motor kept on dying. After getting it running and riding around; this thing is a beast. But I still have to pull the pull starter 7 or more times just to start the motor. What's the deal?
Decided to get serious with my drag racing. This engine landed me at low 10's in the eighth mile. Slam dunk. 10.07 fastest pass, runs great to pull .01 rt. Solid build.
Easy instal and soooo much fun on my hurricane! Customer service was awesome to provide bolt sizes and thread type. Combined with a juggernaut and new tank. Transformed my bike and the experience! Now I’m doing wheelees up my hill… almost on purpose :)
Engine is great out the box, it'll out perform anything you can cobble together and is dead nuts reliable... 67mph on a yard Kart in the quarter mile. It'll run faster if gear for Max speed ...
It’s been good so far about 15 hours in after break in Ik the governor is off but is their a limiter?
Bolted this on a hurricane 200x. It is next to impossible to start without starting fluid. Ive tried everything with the gopowersports team from checking valve lash(too tight from factory), replacing carb, replacing spark plug, changing the idle jet, draining fuel tank and carb bowl, and still no resolution. Stay away from this engine.
Go power sports sucks !!!!! Rising Karts of Palmetto Fl stepped up and helped me while Jason was an asshole .
