    predator engine and kids?

    Got my under seat header and muffler yesterday. Had to enlarge the bolt holes a little and do some precision engineering with a ball peen hammer to get the muffle to fit between the frame bars, but it sounds great and will save some burned skin.

    Twist Throttle Assembly

    After it's assembled how do you keep the cable housing from sliding down the cable? The cable housing doesn't attach to the twist grip on mine.

    predator engine and kids?

    My stock motor runs but is worn completely out. It doesn't have enough power to pull my 8 year old up even the slightest hill. I'm really hoping the throttle set screw will limit the power of the 6.5 enough to provide power to get around but still be controllable and safe.
