DIY Mud Motor Kit - 8HP - 16HP

Product Description

CLP is the leading manufacturer of Thailand Long Tails.  CLP is an engineering company that has perfected the design of the Long Tail.  Their design is the most efficient on the market.   They use high grade, polymer and metal alloy bushings unlike the competition which uses wood bushings.  The shaft is mounted to the engine with a perfect, direct fit through the use of an adapter that has splines.   The result of these features creates less vibration or power loss.  The power is transferred to the prop in the most direct and efficient way.  CLP has worked with Beaver Dam Mud Runners to develop a heavy duty Thailand Long Tail for the North American Market.  See our parts list below to see why our kit is the toughest and best on the market. 

All of our kits now include a Heavy Duty squeeze type throttle. 

Our Kits are Certified by Honda and designed for the GX Series Engines.

Other brands fit these kits- Harbor Freight Predator, Home Depot Lifan, Briggs, Kohler Duromax, Carrol Stream, Etc.

8hp to 16 hp kit

Reviewed by: Nolan Bourgeois on 07/19/2015

I purchased the 8hp to 16hp kit and I put a 13 hp predator motor on it with the 8 .5 propeller. The kit was very easy to put together. When I received my kit it was missing the nut to holds the propeller on . It was lost in shipping . I called up Beaver dam mud runners and they called me back quickly and got me the part the next day. After getting the part in we decided to go try it out that night frogging. The setup overall is good, it pushed us good and when we got were we need the power to get truth the lilies, it was easy to control. It even impressed my brother who owns a Go Devil . I would recommend this to anybody and customer service was awesome with Beaver dam mud runners thanks
