    If that uses a true Whizzer engine, it will not work with the SBP kit without essentially rebuilding the whole kit.

    But there are some weird things about what they list there. They mention thr "98cc 2 stroke kit"- that is not a Whizzer engine, I can assure you. Be advised they are talking about 2 different kits. The Whizzer is 138ccs and 4 stroke (and not near 4.5 hp stock).

    The listing is confusing- I have never seen a 98cc 2 stroke bike engine kit Whizzer or not...and certainly Whizzer never made such a beast. I have never even heard of one a 98cc 2 stroke kit and a dare say that most people here have not. Even what is advertised as 80ccs is closer to 70ccs (and that's being generous). I would like to see a picture of that kit. The picture shown is the 138cc Whizzer 4 stroke and they show nothing about the alleged 98cc 2 stroke.

    Curious listing.

    98cc 2-stroke, You Decide !!

    I talked with Dave at Extreme-scooters.com yesterday.
    Very nice guy. He answered all my questions. He offered to email pics, if I sent an email request, to remind him later.

    As for the advertised Whizzer kits.... they do NOT have them in stock. He said they piece the kits together, per order. (he mentioned: engine, pulleys, belts, clutches, sheaves....)

    Now....about the 98cc Whizzer 2-stroke.....

    He said they were NEW, in stock......made in Taiwan. "4+ hp.... better than a whizzer" !!

    Our Email follows:
    Looks mighty fishy, to me..... Mighty Fishy!!

    Like I said.... You decide! :detective:

    Why does that 98cc engine look so much like the 67cc engines advertised as 80ccs?

    Time to smell the coffee!
    Whizzer USA does not make a 2-stroke motor kit. Although Whizzer has been informed of the mis-leading advertizing, they chose not to fight with the scooter company, not sure why. Whizzer stopped supplying the 138 CC 4 stroke kit over a year ago. They told me it was because an authorized Whizzer dealer was selling a motorbike using their motor and felt it was competition to them selling thier NE5 motorbike. They even told me they were going to use the excuse that they weren't making money on the motor kit. The part of their plan I found to be funny was they sold the last of the remaining kits to the Authorized dealer that caused them to stop supplying the kits in the beginning.

    It is sometimes hard to figure out the logic they use in some of thier decisions.

    Have fun,

    Thank you for confirming my suspicions. That is what I suspected.

    Bait and switch a 2 stroke for a Whizzer...AT THOSE PRICES, then they even misrepresent the engine size. Enough is never enough for some people.

    Up for some fun?

    So.... let's pump this guy up & have some fun. :devilish:

    He told me.... "this is 1/2 the price of a Whizzer kit.... & way better!"

    We have his contact info......

    All we have to do is call/email for info....show some interest! WoW...98cc!! Taiwan = Cool !! :rofl: be sure & tell him it's a good price!! Ask silly questions. Extra points for creativity.....but who's keeping score?
    We just don't want to bust his chops.....Yet...hahaha

    He can't possibly know about us.... how would anyone dare try this scam, knowing we are here... & not stoopid.

    anyone want to play along?
    if so, post your results here.


    If this (my idea) is too crude or just wrong, feel free to 'talk me down',
    but right now... I am totally amused!!! :smilielol5:

    I made a purchase from these guys a while back. I would look up their business reputation with the Georgia BBB. I ended up having to report them to get my money back. They only sent half the order but kept all the money. I did finally get half the money back but it was a fight. Also they don't take credit cards. They want money orders and wire transfers... Red Flag!!!

    The BBB report further mentions that on April 10, 2006, ExtremeScooters signed an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance with the Governor's Office of Consumer Affairs Office and paid restitution payments totaling $11,781.

    The BBB report also mentions that the Office of Consumer Affairs alleges that ExtremeScooters who also does business under the name of Extreme-Hobby has used unfair or deceptive acts or practices in the conduct of consumer transactions including:
    1) Deceptively advertising, promoting, and soliciting business through its websites in violation of O.C.G.A. // 10-1-393(a), (b)(5),(b)(7), (b)(9), (b)(10), and 10-1-393.5.
    2) Offered for sale and accepted payment for merchandise of particular brands but instead delivered merchandise of different brands in violation of O.C.G.A. // 10-1-393(a), (b)(5),(b)(7) and 10-1-393.5(b).
    3) Represented through its websites that certain merchandise was in stock when in fact it was not, in violation of // 10-1-393(a), (b)(5) and 10-1-393.5(b).
    4) Accepted payment for merchandise but failed to deliver this merchandise or provide refunds, in violation of O.C.G.A. // 10-1-393(a), (b)(9), and 10-1-393.5(b).

    Look at that. He signed the Assurance of Voluntary Compliance almost three years ago, yet he still continues with his decptive practices. He apparently doesn't care, as what he's doing must be quite lucrative. Hopefully, economic Darwinism will win out.
     
  14. HA HA Dave I like your style

    I just sent them this email YUK YUK


    Wow I just saw your 98cc motor kit. It looks just like the Whizzer kit. Did you know that they are all out of them? I have been waiting for over a year for one. I would like to reserve one of yours. Please send me info on how to do this. Are these made by Whizzer? Can I buy one now or is there a waiting list?

    haha did you notice they offered me a better price?
     
  19. Bait & Switch

    He shows pictures of a Whizzer motor on the site. There is no pic of the 98" that he claims he has. Probably is a great deal though. But then I am a FISH. I wonder if he really sells any of these for 550... Wow talk about a SUCKER born every minute......Can't you buy these kits anywhere for about 125 to 150??? :dunce::dunce::dunce::dunce::dunce::dunce::dunce::dunce:
