    I don't care what anyone builds. Just restating Honda's own opinion of their bare bones, light use, residential engine. I've talked with a few people who have used them on mini bikes, and they had no complaints. I built an exhaust for my GC160 out of a Cat handle bar half, and put it on a Powell to test. I stuck with the HS40 I rebuilt for it.

    I'm the last guy to accuse of "running down a Honda" especially on a Predator-Lovefest Forum. That GC engine is the ONLY OHV engine I've had that I didn't toss in the front of my house for pickers to grab.

    Broken plastic cams and an occasional belt seem the only failures, and the parts are cheap.
    Doing much of a valve job would take some effort.
    I haven't ruled out converting a cam drive to #25 chain.
    I've got a couple of them, and Winter is coming...

    And, OEMs are starting to use a belt-in-oil drive, including a new small Ford diesel.
