Talking RCMK in-line twin 50.2cc 10hp

The RCMK is a lovely bit of engineering But the recoil is not very good But that is only a £20 upgrade That is the only bad thing I can say about the engine If you have a 6 foot hull this would be ideal

Get an RCMK K600S - its the same crankcase as the S520 but with K30 top ends on it which makes 57cc and 14hp and only £100 more than the RCMK S520

Heres mine with the Werner WD200 box on it....
