Awesome project!


Here’s a silly question.....I’ve been looking into the Vegas Carts big block kits.

Is there a reason I should look at doing the 22hr predator instead of just one of theirs?

Thanks , and as far as the Vegas carts kits go... I made my decision based on hp rating and being able to go to my local HF store to purchase. Verified Reviews on the HF motor were actually really good despite what most say. I know I wanted a v-twin so it really came down to cost. I can buy two of the harbor freight motors before I could buy one Briggs or Honda engine. I plan on probably selling the cart within a year so I opted for the cheaper route.

Iíve heard good things about the Vegas motors though.

And as far as the install goes, their kit I used makes it a breeze to swap out. Only thing is that the original brake cable(which your supposed to re-use) on the passenger side is about 2 inches too short in my opinion so I am going to try and find a longer one for just that side.

Member on here (Cavemandrew) I think was his name, posted a few videos of his Yamaha with the 670 in it. Sounded awesome and looked like it could haul.

If you have not sourced a longer cable yet, fabricate a longer brake rod between the pedal and the equaliser, or make an extension to the original., no replacement cables required.

NICE Is there any more adjustment holes left on the front swing arm mount to level out the engine a little more? I found shorting the governor return spring to get you a few more RPMs.

When you bought the vegas mounting kit which one did you buy? Just the plate or the whole kit? Was it a pain to get everything to work right? If you don't mind me asking, how much was the engine and mounting kit total?
Thanks Mike

I bought the complete kit (minus the engine). The kit was about $700 and same for the engine from harbor freight. I havenít actually run it yet, so I canít say how easy or hard it was until I start it and drive it. I did have to relocate the factory oil cooler from the predator engine though since it was too close to the shift lever on the axle. Nothing too hard- just time consuming.
