RE: Broken pushrod on lightly used Saito 100
That isn't close to over reving on the ground. Saito says 11,000 rpm, so figure around 10,000 on the ground. It's a judgement call since we don't know how much it unloads in the air. I use about a thousand rpm for headroom.
I'm curious to see if Dave can slip one in on his 80.
