So i went out to go get the mail on the minibike, on the way back the rod let go and locked her up. Whooooops. I think I'll get another 3hp with a good rotating assembly and do some mods and put her back together. I'd go bigger but I'm not in the mood to buy a ¾" clutch

Picked this up for $30 yesterday, guess it fits into this thread...

85 Suzuki LT250F. Previous owner said it needed a coil or something ignition related. Supposedly it shuts down when it gets hot.

First thing i did was rewind the pull start. Pulls over fine, feels like it has compression.

I pulled it over and checked spark. Seems to have some. I haven't checked compression yet. I sprayed some carb cleaner down the carb but still didn't get a fire. Guess I'm gonna check valve lash next

speaking of clutches, you can get centrifugal clutches pretty cheap if you look. I forget where I got one, amazon or BMI karts maybe. But it was way less than the $40-50 they are normally priced at. Looked decent enough too. 5hp and 3.5hp briggs have the same crankshaft I think. 5hp is a big improvement. Same mounting bolt pattern also.

So I ended up selling the ATV for $150. Couldn't ever get it to run, or even pop really. Good riddance anyways.
