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.

Words can not describe ho w happy i am with my new clp long tail. I have about 10 hours on it now and am currently running it on a bone stock harbor freight predator 420cc motor w/ 8.5"on a custom built 14x48 (all welded 1/8 plate aluminum with decks and boxes) flat bottom weighing in around 250lbs. Went out for a speed run today and got 18 mph with me, my sister, a cooler, 3 gal gas can plus bunch of bow fishing gear. Motor was very easy to handle with the new bent bar vs the old straight one i had before. Looking forward to this coming season
