Not exactly the best example for building confidence. I'm sticking with Cuddy on this one.It worked just fine with Larry's minibike. We traded a 3hp B&S for a 5hp...no problem. The problem came when we sawed the front forks in 1/2 and welded in some water pipe to make it a chopper. Larry made it about 2 blocks when they broke. The busted forks stuck in the ground like a knife. Larry and the minibike did a ground loop endo that was awesome!
As long as he leaves the suspension alone he'll be fine!
