i haven't owned one my self but have seen what can happen. one thing you need to watch is the tires being used. those trailer are rated for the buggies weight but if the tires are not rated correctly or able to run at highway speeds you will be blowing tires.

there are a lot of comercial vehicles running CNG right now but there is a "give & take" with any of it. i know a few guys running propane in their jeeps but these guys are not running flat out either, most are crawling so the propane works well with articulating the vehicle. as far as...

I know it's side ways,but that is actually a top to a battery box. So it should work as a bottom as well! I'm sure you can get it for a couple bucks + shipping. Is it okay for the battery to sit on it's side? If it's a gel cell battery. X2, only a glass mat or gel battery can be mounted on steep an...

if you are going to spend the money on aluminum wheels may i suggest going larger (if you have the room) you will be happier.
stock HH wheels are kinda small. go with 10" all the way around and you will have more ground clearance and a wider range of tire choices.

10x4 or 5 front
10x8 rear

i agree with JD with my build i used 520 chain and it was easier and cheaper to have the local machine shop grind them down than try and find sprockets with the right bore size and bolt pattern. now, if you are changing the toothe count up or down, that's another story. one place i found good prices...

is the CDI you purchased adjustable? i have seen this in the past. depending on where you got the parts.....not all are created equal. i found out the hard way. on my HH250ss i went back to the stock OEM ignition box. they work just fine and they are made for the hammerhead. some of the aftermarket ...

i did the same thing with mine when i removed the HH muffler. it was too loud so i purchased a walker brand muffler for a honda civic and it was 1.5" in & out so it fit my pipe. i don't remember if i posted the part number in my post or not but you can try a search.

Mock up an air intake like the carbide's use. The snorkel sits up between the seats well Above the engine.
You will need to tweak the jetting a bit depending on where you live and how long the intake pipe is but not a big deal.

Just my two cents.....but I would have JD build you a header pipe. When I had my HH I spent the $300 on that exhaust. Don't get me wrong. You will notice a difference in power but not $300 worth IMO.

most, if not all HH250's have shifter linkage, not a cable for the forward and reverse gears and yes, modern 250's are water cooled.
post some pics of what you have and it will help.

this was my 2007 HH250

the HH250 is a great buggy. one piece of advice......do not get sucked into all the hype about "upgrades". there are a few that you will notice a difference with and others are just throwing money at it. the CDI (IMO) is not a must for an upgrade uless you have a rev limiter on yours now. ...
