This is why you use billet rods

This was a brand new Honda gx200 that left the building at 6200rpm. It ruined a brand new Hilliard flame clutch and split the top of the block. Also ruined a new arc billet flywheel. So to all you guys pulling the governor outta your motors and thinking it’ll be fine without the proper components think again. 61EE676A-090C-410B-B46D-A913A5EC7CB2.jpeg 2C2BC828-526C-4870-9F56-CA6DB67B5390.jpeg 19D58924-7EFE-49AD-A05A-3F46B9106F70.jpeg FBC29940-5275-487D-B95B-2EFCED1F07CD.jpeg 14308C29-9CBB-40D9-851F-483111DA78CC.jpeg

I know guys who used to race T/F Harley drag bikes , that got their ribs broken ect. during a run,, because they ride it basically laying over the top frame, & then something in the engine letting go ....
Yeah, the engines we use are intended to run at 3600 RPM and aren't all that well balanced. You can get them to run a lot fastser, but you run the risk of, well, this. Good news is the parts for these engines are plentiful and not expensive. Now you have a fun project!
