Talking Predator 212cc flywheel

I'm looking into modding my predator 212cc engine with exhaust, air filter, fuel pump, etc. the first thing I was going to do was remove the governor. I know
I have to get new valve springs, and I read you should get an aluminum flywheel to make sure your engine doesn't blow up. Do they make these flywheels? I've seen them for several other engines, but not the predator. I've also seen forums for this question, but they were pretty old. Thanks for the help!

It can still blow but it would take much more for it to happen from what I understand.

Is this Predator new? or an older model?....A.R.C flywheel will not fit the new "Hemi" head version,the crank has a different taper than the older engines have,I don't know about the A.R.C. rod,it might but You must check the rod journal dia. to be sure....Scootercat....

I don't know all about the difference from old to new,but I read something on "Bobs fourstroke" go-kart site about the different taper that is what the flywheel mounts on,and the A.R.C. 6652 wont fit the new model....
