The pros outweigh the cons.

Cheap price and good availability, well-known vendor with warranty, excellent aftermarket parts availability.

The motor width issue is the same with the Honda GX200 and all 212cc clones.

I removed my pull start, so it narrowed almost an inch.

The 212 Predator was out of stock when I was shopping for one, so I bought a 212 Lifan engine.

I don't see any issues, when comparing the Predator 212 engine with the other 212 clones.
