Another pleasant surprise was the castings and finish. Unlike the grainy castings of many of the other clones, the Predator is closer related to the Honda as far as detail and quality.
It comes with the usual features found on most clones. What a deal, right? First, we need a baseline horsepower and torque number. That means a trip to see Dr. And a dyno is as good as it gets for this. In order to meet EPA standards you will find these clones are jetted very lean.
In fact, they are too lean for what we want. I have found that 85 - 90 works better at most elevations and should get you in the ballpark and on your way to making safe and reliable power.
The other jet of concern is the pilot jet. And that is located just under the idle screw adjuster. Normal pilot jets are in the range of. We want. So off comes the gas tank to be replaced with an aluminum top plate for added strength. Add some of your favorite oil and we are ready for our appointment with the good Dr. Our Predator fired right up without hesitation and ran smooth for its 30 minute break in.
The new jetting was much to her liking with smooth acceleration and crisp throttle response.Login or Sign Up. Predator engines. Previous 1 2 template Next. Posts Latest Activity. Page of 2.

Our bike has its own gas tank like a motorcycle, so when you take the tank of the engine, it looks tiny. As much aftermarket stuff ther is looking at that forum might have to do a go cart also. Deaf Bob. Re: Predator engines March 23rd,PM. Anybody know the size of the output shaft? Wanna know if my comet clutch will work Hopefully DeafBob has a 1" clutch so he "Has" to get the 13 hp electric start. That's a LOT of engine for a mini-bike for a youngster. You may wanna build a throttle stop for it or change the way the throttle gets set.
The way the governer works, it will go full throttle until it hits whatever speed you have selected, then throttle it back. I haven't looked to see if they have better governor setups in the aftermarket, but that was how Hondas worked and I would be shocked if that's not a Honda clone. Motor is a 8 hp Techumseh currently on the Allsport trike. When I was lighter and the motor was younger, i was sliding around a corner into the driveway up to the house. Then added my 5 year old daughter and it would no longer slide, since trikes do not turn, I hit the wall, held her back and we didnt hit the wall with our faces close my legs were swollen like sausages.
It sat in the barn. Got it going again 15 years ago, so weak, we just put it away. Now we'd like something I can ride to the far reaches of the farm.
A cousin has 2 of them with 5 hp engines and does way better than my 8 hp. Do not pay more than 99 bucks for the cc This little bugger hauls ass If you can leave two black stripes from the exit of one corner to the braking zone of the next, you have enough horsepower. Back when some of us were kids people used to throw these away like they were going out of style, mainly because they were. We never had a shortage of free engines.Item for sale outside California only, please refer to item for California compliant model.
I tested the top speed from 3 different apps so its pretty accurate. I needed to up grade the motor for my yerf dog so I called go power sports and they were so helpful with answering all my questionsI got the motor that took 2 weeksI so far added oil and test fired it,it arn strong and well, my only complaint I paid extra for a TCT carb and I thought it would have been installed, no big deal.
