Alot of people here run Kohlers, and some will tell you that they have more power than brings and last longer. I've not tryed one yet, but most of them are pretty strong.

really depends on what type of motorsport you are in and how much money you invest in the motor. They all good if built right.

I moved from Tecumseh to a Kohler CS12 on my Group 2 wheels machine over here in the UK. The Kohler has completely transformed the whole machine. It pulls like a train - loads of torque out of the corners - no waiting for it to pick up like the old tecumseh - just give it a handful and you're gone. Top speed is way over what it was last season too - I geared up a few teeth for this engine and it just never seems to have had enough - it's dropping a lot of Group 3 and 4 machines now - which has never happened before! Reliability - it's had two oil changes through the season, and the air filter cleaned a few times - it's never missed a beat and the oil always comes out golden. To say I'm impressed would be something of an understatement!!
