5488 RPM’s

Recommended Posts

What should a 5488 idle at and what is the top end? The one I recently purchased is set to right at a 1,000 idle before you slide the lever over to the kill position. Which doesn’t seem too bad.

The top end is what I’m more worried about. Throttle all the way up seems like it’s screaming. I normally only run it 2400-2500 which is about an inch to 1.5 inches down in the slot. How fast is too fast?
