I run a fc420 (I think) kawasaki k series carb on mine. Works great and you can use dyno jets for like an atv in it. Works great.

They are not much more expensive than any of the rest depending on how carried away you get. In my opinion they are more reliable and forgiving compared to a briggs. However with as few that are built, used aftermarket parts are extremely hard to come by if that's how your lookin to buy your parts. What carb rules do you have? Any restrictions to what you can run?
