well just put a cox 049(black widow i think) on a small sportster. went on better than i expected but its pretty tail heavy. im afraid that its either just tail heavy or a sing that the engine is to small. but am i right that a speed 400 is close to the power of an 049? i swear i have heard and saw that a few times.

Which is why replacing a 180 size with one is always fun.
