A 1100cc engine is rather big and heavy!! I suggest you use 2 inch (50mm 
diameter) tubing with a wall thickness of 3 or 4mm.

Also - I do realise you will have to attach the radiator and cooling 
system for that engine. Thats the reason I use smaller air cooled engines 
- as I dont have to worry about the radiator etc.

Anyways, I do suggest you use larger diameter steel tubes for the main 
pieces of the chassis. It would be possible to use smaller 1.4" tubing for 
the cross members in the chassis.

If you email any photos of the engine and chassis, I will gladly put them 
on the kartbuilding website.

Best of Luck,
