    I’ve only ever used standard chain or belt drive. Now, I’m about to start spinning some o-ring chain, and, apart from not being able to resize it, any other difference in the care and feeing of an o-ring chain compared to a standard chain?
    Sincerely,

  • Another clutch question

    @Speedpickle wrote:

    Being that I will have to change crank halves on the HPV, it has me wondering if I can or should do the same thing to my trusty old Comer 351L FA. Finding a piston for that has been a chore. I loved my 351 DD. AT 57 I can see some olympic level face plants or other nasty shat eating from the driver, pusher, and likely both. A low RPM lock up clutch would be cool. Force myself to keep the RPM to something sane and it might make a very cool package with enough run time life to make it fun. I wonder what PTO half would make that possible. Any ideas?

  • KPV Clutch

    @Speedpickle wrote:

    Greetings and thanks in advance for the help… I need to convert a couple of our original HPV 100’s over to the KPV clutch. My understanding is that the crank taper is the same… Is this simply a leopard clutch, or is it a specific KPV only item?

  • Beautician flung from go-kart loses €60k damages claim

    Meanwhile, back in my homeland…

    A lawsuit against an indoor track I worked at (lonnng time ago) was tossed out of court… Figured this might be interesting to folks in NA.

    This is interesting because

    1. Go karts
    2. Perhaps more seriously. She was thrown from the kart yet the claim was still dismissed. Indoor rental karts in Ireland don’t have belts like they do in the US

    Here’s the interesting bit…

    Judge O’Sullivan said there were certain risks and dangers attached to go-karting. Ms Mikielewska had participated in the sport on several previous occasions and he was satisfied she was aware of those risks. She had been torpedoed from the kart which, the court had been told, had not contained seat belts for specific safety reasons.

    An expert on behalf of Kylemore Karting had stated the go-kart was treated similar to a motor bike or quad. It was safer that a driver be thrown clear rather than be strapped into a kart that may overturn.
