The bumper is on it because it's a counter weight that's why it's so far forward it's because I have a 7ft long 6ft wide deck and well when I put all my stuff on it and it rolls that's probably gonna be the piece that saves my behind

I also made my deck wider then my wheels just by a little bit and if it rolls on it's side the bumper and deck will keep it from flipping

I guess always bracing. Id improve steering, make it bullet prof. Improve clutch and maybe pulleys.

And I'm using 1 1/2in exhaust out back to a honda recon 250 muffler, I should port and polish it and hop it up a little. QUESTION!!! How much can you jet one with getting the best power and throttle response out of it, it's a briggs and Stratton 16.5hp """HIGH PERFORMANCE"""

Personally is put a atv carb on it K2500. And i realize they arnt done just saying conduit isnt the most solid material but will work. What kind of deck material are you using?
