Heh yeah this thing gets some great fuel economy it seems. BTW I tried reading some writing on it but all that was really readable was the fact that itll do 4k to 5k rpms, and it produces 4hp at 4.5k.
And compared to the video I posted, mine doesnt shake or smoke like that one. But I definitely want that starting system. I have to start with the cover off, and then Im afraid of dropping the cover while trying to put it back on when its running. So we were running all day with the cover off and well, we accidentally brushed our hands against the flywheel a few times.
The biodegradable oil is definitely a good idea, but the motor still probably exhausts gasoline. But you do have a good point, it doesnt use much gas at all. I still wanna see twin exhausts coming out of this thing though. Or if not, Ill still enjoy it just the way it is.
We had 3 people in this row boat, in very shallow rocky water. Had to do a lot of maneuvering around rocks, had to fight the currents in the river, and definitely hit a bunch of rocks with the boat as well as the motor. The prop didnt get damaged at all, and all in all just very happy with this motor.
