motor. A friend of mine has an 1150 dual spark. Surges so bad he is
getting rid of it. The dealer worked on it several times. I worked on
it once. My result was that is ran great for exactly 8.0 miles. Then
the surge returned like turning on a light switch. I think there is a

You want the 1200 motor.
