Flywheel and ride are a must if removing governor from an opposed twin.  Leave the rest stock and you will have cheap fun.   

If you only remove the governor you will shoot a rod through the block or die when the flywheel explodes.

Driveline / Transaxle gearing
« Last post by Negrey on March 24, 2020, 10:17:28 PM »
Gearing options when using a transaxle, Right now I'm setup with a near 1-2 ratio input and 12-1 in top gear to get a total ratio of 6-1. I found another transaxle that had top gear 6-1, (I'm pretty sure) So to achieve the same crank to axle ratio I can go 1-1 on pulleys, Other than the two things that came to mind of benefit, that I can run a significantly smaller engine pulley and my transaxle input will not be over driven.

Is there anything else to be gained from this gearing? any feel differences? any reasons why the overdrive is a better option?

Thanks

A clone of a Honda engine.  Sold by retailers such as harbor freight.  All the Honda parts fit.   There are a lot of performance parts for the Honda.

I'm not sure what is available for that engine.

If your removing governor you will need a billet flywheel and billet rod. 

Probably going to need to do something with the valve springs and retainers.

For more performance a better cam and Carb are next.

Although you can probably find a used built clone engine for less money.
