    I'm going to put a Toyota gas pedal on my bike

    Maybe then I'll be faster.

    Cool!

    Other people see a problem - you see opportunity.

    Excellent idea but I do not think you want to adapt the braking system they use.

    I think I will do the same. It will match the faulty engine.

    I would check out your brakes before you do that, might not be able to stop after all that speed.
