    All the eBay kits are pretty much same just minor differences.

    Is there one that goes into the huffy cranbrook hassle free? Is there anything components that I need to watch out for or/and look into upgrading?

    Is a 10:1 ratio where you put 1 gallon of oil into 9 of gasoline or where you out 1 gallon of oil into ten gallons of gasoline?

    It's the second one - 1 gallon of oil for every 10 gallons of gasoline. Also, a 10:1 is way too low for breaking in these engines. Most people recommend that you should use a 16:1 of unsynthethic oil during break in and 25:1 of full synthetic thereafter.

    One part i know you will need is the special u-bolt and mounting plate for the front mount because I assume the Huffy you have in mind is a cruiser and had a wider diameter down bar. I think pretty much all kits have that though. Another thing to lookout for is the wording "machine balanced crankshaft" or any other language that indicates that the crankshaft is balanced and is a single piece. If you stay away from the cheapest kits, you will avoid getting an engine with the older unbalanced two piece shaft. I personally recommend paying a little extra and buying a kit from someone who builds HT engines themselves. You usually will get better parts in the engine and will not have to worry about assembly errors. I have bought from Dax - http://thatsdax.com/. I also hear this guy is really good to http://ozarkcruisers.com/

    As for upgrading, I recommend buying a rear sprocket adapter for your first build. It is so much easier to true than the rag joint and you don't have to worry about worrying your spokes.

    When you say too low do you mean too much oil? Wouldn't a 10:1 be higher then a 16:1 ratio?

    Also where can I get the rear sprocket adapter and is there instructions for connecting it?

    How many teeth should the rear sprocket adapter have?

    Yes, I meant a 10:1 is too much oil.

    You have several choices with how many teeth the rear sprocket may have. I bought mine from BikeBerry and the sprocket that comes with the adapter is the stock 44t, however there are options ranging from 36t to 48t. A smaller sprocket increases top speed while a bigger sprocket increases torque at the expense of speed. I went crazy and bought a 66t before they discontinued them just to see how well it could off road and climb hills and it was amazing. You might want to shop around at different sites that sell them as BikeBerry is kind of expensive.

    Those are very pricey, I think I'll just keep it stock and see how well everything does. I'm looking forward to it!

    Can't wait to have fun

    It is a hit and miss situation.

    I Recommend the santa fe 80cc ebay motor it goes 37mph with stock parts, or the powerking motor on ebay (grey one) which also has a speed of 37mph, it just has more of a grunt sound which sounds awesome!

    There is no such thing as a 80cc the biggest is really only 69. something CC. Do the math 40mm stroke by 47mm bore. Do not take much stock in claimed speed or horsepower as most of the time it is way over exaggerated. Sellers will tell you anything to make a sale!

    This is true but i thought we all knew that? :p Also them speeds were tested by me, the claimed speed on the powerking is 55km but i get 60+km the santa fe is 60km and i get 60+km after break in of course..

    I never call any of them 80cc as they are not! Some call all slip joint or water but plieers as channelLock but unless they are made by channelLock they are not. Some call all adjustable wrenches Crescent wrench but unless the are made by Cresnet they are just adjustable wrenches. Call what you wan even if it is wrong. :eek:

    Lifan 50cc-125cc all the 2 stroke is pointless unless you use a 65cc dirt bike engine or something alone these lines. But that 80cc ebay bullshit kit that everyone has is DUMPSTER JUICE!!!!!

    Rico did you get that Lifan 125cc installed on your main bike? Some pictures if you did would be cool :) I keep forgetting but are you manual, semi-auto, or full auto on your bike?
