    I tried to tell people that they need to lean forward if they are going to ride the mini because it can really acelerate quickly. That did not work and some people developed a case of road rash. So I fixed the minibike by adding 18lbs of steel to the frame to change it's center of gravity. 12lbs bolted to the number plate right over the front wheel and 6 lbs down low and glued to the frame right in front of the engine with 3M body panal adhesive. Now every one can ride it with out getting a nasty case of road rash

    I have 2 Predator 212cc engines. Use a good full synthetic oil and they will last a long time. I use Amsoil synthetic oil in both of them. I rejetted the snow blower engine and left the air intake box alone. However I hogged out the air intake box on the Mini-bike and re jetted it quite a bit richer and wow what a difference. These emision engines are jetted very lean and they tend to reponsed very favorably to more air and fuel. I even needed to add some weight to the frame of my Mini-bike because the Predator 212cc turned it into a wheelie machine and both my wife and stepdaughter wiped out on it and my step daughter's boy friend wheelied it right over too.

    How is your 32 inch Ariens resto with the 420cc Predator engine going? That thing should be a real beast when you are done! Post a video of it blowing snow on You-tube. I finally decided to order a Predator 212cc at $89.99 with the coupon and I will take the Briggs off since all it is doing is pooping gas and oil all over the pretty paint job I did and plus it runs rather poorly and much louder than the Predator 212cc and it really sucks the gas like you won't believe. You will love the Predator 420cc engine. I was watching a you tube video of a guy blowing snow with an old 26 inch Ariens with a new 11hp Predator 346cc on it and man could that thing really toss the snow!. I bet it was flying 40 to 50 feet easily and everyone knows it will use much less gas and be much easier to start than the old Tecumseh that came on it. Too many people dismiss the Chinese replacement engines as being junk with out ever giving them a chance. I say buy one and you will like it.
