Yes, they all have rev limiters - the 300 Hawkeye's rev limiter is built into the speedo. The black wire connected to the CDI unit kills spark on every other stroke at a preset RPM - the RPM is read by the speedo from the yel/red wire off the alternator. Disconnect the black wire from the CDI box or disconnect the red/yel wire from the speedo and the rev limiter is defeated.Secondly, I have a question for all of you. Do 300 and 400 Hawkeyes, 500,570 and 800 sportsman’s have rev limiters ?
No I don't think it was cheap, but you used cheap parts, cheap machining/engineering methods and wasted a huge amount of time accomplishing almost nothing. From an engineering point of view, it was an excellent exercise in futility. From a machinist point of view, it was an excellent example of what will and will not work. From a mechanics point of view, what is supposed to be the result of wasting time on this project other than finding out what parts and methods NOT to use?what is that supposed to mean? Do you really think this was cheap?
Education is not cheap and you should be pleased that you have the ability to teach yourself - that is a rare talent.As I said in the beginning, this project was to learn and eventually upscale to a larger engine/frame the long term goal is 100hp out of this. It is entirely fun and only has a purpose for learning. If I wasn’t wasting my time doing this, I’d be wasting my time playing video games. I think you can see which one I’ll learn more from.
