A Jawa is just another engine package it takes the whole package to win and sometimes a lot of luck .
After being there at the THUNDER in Carnesville, GA last weekend and watching his kart fly on rails. Hey I came close to buying a complete kart setup with a CRF450 at the thunder for $4,800 and I brought the cash and trailer to bring it back to South Florida and I said no way I am going with the JAWA 500cc . So I am ordering complete rebuilt JAWA 500cc model number 889 -10-208 it is a speedway motor with 90mm bore and 78 mm stroke at over 75 to 85 hp depends on carb and pipe setup on methanol. For motor only $3,750 plus carb price around $400 and then have a custom fab motor mount solid billet would be the ticket . The use a motorcycle megaphone exhaust pipe for that wicked sound . Cody racing in CA sells the motor and the best part is rebuilt will only cost $350 or top end only $200.. Note my Wankel AXIRO XR 50 is very fast on rails but the Jawa 500cc is stupid fast on rails . Check out the guys and girls up in NWUAS they are racing the JAWA 500cc up there at Sunset Race Way in Spokane ,WA. NWUAS run what you brung series(RWYB)

Ever know someone who says "I was going to buy this....which I considered the BEST ever, until I saw THAT which definately was the best ever.....and so instead....I bought nothing at all. See ya' at the track."
