Default Briggs 23HP redline with Rev kit/Hi Per Cam

What is the red line on the Briggs 23 HP with the Hi performance cam and rev kit/timing key installed??? I am building a motorcycle and this is the engine choice I'm going with. I also don't know what clutch/driven pulley combo to use for this type of power/RPM's. Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!

I have the same engine. Keep it under 5500 to be safe. If you have a performance v-twins set of rods and pistons you could twist it more real easy.

5500 sounds good. hopefully this bike is going to fly! This forum is the only place i could find good info on tuning and upgrades for the vanguards. great links and great karts!

that comet 780 is rated to 5000 rpm's . would running at 5500 damage the clutch or belt or anything like that. Thanks for the help, this is my first vanguard project!

CPP sells the 1190 for less and is one of our sponsors.

I think that the 780 will do the job just fine, I am not going to be moving that much weight...but I am confused about what driven pulley to use because the 780 clutch doesn't come with a driven pulley.

I looked on comet's site and found nothing.
