DIY Mud Motor Kit - 8HP - 16HP

Product Description

We are out of stock of 85in shafts until the 4th week of September.  Kits will ship with a 100in shaft at no additional charge.

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. 


All of our kits now include a $28 wiring harness for the Kill Switch- "Plug and Play" with most engines!


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

This was one of the best investments I’ve made so far. Kit was easy to assemble and runs in an inch of water no issues. Everyone on the lake was asking where I got it from. Definitely won’t be the last product I buy from Beaver Dam Mud Runners!
