Bought a new KOS, set up to bench run 1st tank. 5-6 pulls on the starter and the starter assembly broke. Cheap plastic POS...

Almost all the pull starters on these engine are apt to break at any given time. My Segad starter still works fine and has a lot of pulls.

I took the stock motor out and put a KWA 4.5. There is no comparison between the two just running them on the bench shows that the stock motor is not of much value.
Two pulls a quarter turn on the low mixture screw and she purrs at idle and runs up like its fully broken in after 1 tank. Stock motor is for sale in classifieds if anyone wants to take on the challenge. What Venom should do is offer this boat with the KWA for about a $100 upgrade charge and forget about the stock motor. See you on the lake..
