    Hey guys, i posted this question on the facebook group, but figured i would post it here too.

    Basically, i am wondering if a 13 hp honda will be enough motor for my sons two seater. I want torque with a top speed of 20mph. With the clutch setup and fnr box... it is actually cheaper than just the GX630 motor, which is my other choice. The gx630 is what i have in my single seater. I dont think he is anywhere near ready for that though.

    A 13 hp engine should work fine for the speed and torque that you're looking for. If he needs more horsepower later, there's a few mods that will kick it up to 20+ horsepower without too much trouble.

    I don't know if you've looked at clutches, but you want to go with a Comet 40 clutch setup at a minimum. The 30 series clutches don't work well above 8 hp, in my opinion. If you can afford it, a set of Comet 780 series clutches would be even better. If you upgraded the engine to more horsepower, the clutches would handle it with ease.
