    I cut the mounting posts down with a standard pipe cutter but anything would do, they're "steel" but not much stronger than the pot metal variety.

    Honestly, nothing, the motor is so choked up with the little carb it just can't make enough power to get past around 60mph on flat ground. Downhill I saw 70 with the original gearing but that was an outlier ( on the blueridge parkway, downhill, full tuck).

    I'm definitely planning on carb and cam next, I think there's a little more to be had from this motor.

    Gotcha.. I'm planning on going up a tooth on my 250 hoping to pick up 3 to 5 mph across the board but primarily concerned with middle cruise.
    I'm looking forward to updates on the engine.
