    Welcome to the form you will love it here.
    Do yourself a favor and go to the vendor review area and do some reading, so you know witch dealer to use and witch ones to not use, you will be glad you did.
    Also take it from me and never ever use a vendor that does not take Pay-Pal.
    I myself also will not buy from a vendor that does not offer some kind of warranty longer then 7-45 days, there are vendors that offer a 6 month warranty and have will help you free of charge ,before you buy make sure they don't charge you for help, some vendors will charge to help you even if it's there fault.
    I found out these thing the hard way, don't let it happen to you.

    I would suggest a friction drive if your looking for reliability. 2stroke definitaly is the way to go. I have thousand of miles on my friction kit and haven't ever been left stranded..good luck..I hope you find the kit suited for your needs! Chain drive's can be reliable they just take more maintenance. Remeber the bigger the engine the more torque and the more torque you have the more your gonna break stuff..I would go with 40-66cc. If your gonna go chain.

    thank you. i hadnt relly thought about friction drive. for some reason i liked the idea of chain drive . but i do know a honda motor would be more reliabile. thast why i got on this site. thankyou for your input. ill look into a friction drive.

    Just type in friction drive bike kit on google it will show you all the friction drive kits..I suggest a 2stroke kit. they are made to run at a higher performance. 4strokes just dont cut it..going down hills makes them run at higher rpms than they are designed for..2strokes are made to run at higher rpms..

    Chain drive
    80cc 2-stroke engine
    Sick Bike parts shift kit

    It's the only sensible way to go about it.

    Thats a good kit if you like to tinker. To much power though for a bike. Hitting the pavement at 45 hurts alot more than 30. Not to mention the torque it puts on all the moving parts. I would suggest if you go chain go a lower cc. 80cc you might as well get a motorcycle! atleast its built for the strain.

    @ BchCruiser

    Your advise is misleading, considering my bike has clocked over 40,000 kilometers on the original frame, wheels and hub components.

    I never said anything about hitting the pavement at 45. Any bicycle has the ability to hit 45 without an engine if it's gravity assisted, but the extra engine capacity of the 80cc is beneficial when travelling up hills or towing a loaded bicycle trailer.

    How fast the bike travels on flat ground is proportional to how sensible the rider is and how much he or she values his or her life.

    You can't legislate against stupidity. The government tries to do so at every opportunity (with a nanny state) and it fails miserably on a daily basis.

    40,000km..I never said a bicycle couldn't get that..your engine wouldn't thats for sure..by to much torque..i mean everything related to you engine not your bicycle..the sprocket clutch chain tensioner the chain..bottom line if you like to tinker then get a chain drive..if you like to just to ride get a friction drive..less moving parts less maintenance..all you have to do is read through post on this forum about kits and its pretty obvious which ones are more reliable..theres way more chain drives with problems than friction..thats for sure..
    My 26cc gets me up hills were i live..there not really steep..and i dont pull trailers around..i dont think alot of bikers do either..
