Just for kicks, wanted to see what it looked like and if they would function. I have full range of movement but, may have to change the clutch bell to a lower gear?

How is your trugy running?
Running very well, seems to like to be on the hot side, for example it runs like a dog at 190 F to 225 F but between 230 and 255 watch out it really comes alive. I'm thinking that either it's still breaking in or it just likes to run hot. Seems that every engine is a little different.

I wouldn't call those temps "hot". I've ran engines that love to run 275-290, those are "hot". :D

It does look pretty cool. 255F is kind of warm, but not awful. Considering your running a single speed rig, your probably running pretty high rpm's. Stock engine?
