    So I saw a post about a mud motor mod that TomFL
    was doing....got my intrest due to the fact that I also have a Honda GX200 beavertail motor that I would like to mod a little. I have already pulled off the stock exaust and gone to a straight header. At this point I would like to do some more but do not want to effect the motors reliablity.

    What at this point should I do to mod this motor out to gain more torq and speed but keep it reliablity?

    Just swap out the whole motor(not the drive portion) ... Cheaper in the long run ....

    Welcome

    Get ahold of a go kart racing shop as they are most likely far more knowlegable on this type of motor.

    Use Noe's advice. These motors are designed for torque mainly. I spent over $500 on a 13 hp Honda to find that I gained only 2-3 mph on a good day. If it is speed your looking for than just sell the longtail and go with the biggest surface drive possible. You WILL be disapointed if you go with the modded route especially financially. Good luck!
