    hey bone

    looks like the standard HT engine -- don't know a lot in regards to those except
    DON"T BUY from BoyGo Fast Co.
    always make sure that you are buying from a company you can trust
    did you check the vendo review section ?

    get one and -- ride that thing

    If it was me i would be reluctant to buy from this particular vendor cos he lists NO spare parts.Engines(and kits) vary from vendor to vendor so unless your expecting never to have any problems i would steer clear.
    The general rule for mounting a HT engine is 14''(36cm) distance in the "seat tube",measured from the INSIDE.You can go smaller but it's not recommended for routine maintenance.

    i have the 80cc engine kit from raw
    its good
    no problems with engine
    only problem i had was the chain tensor was too big for my frame
    but a little rubber pieces made it fit good
    no problems there
    other problem was clutch lever on handle broke (user error in my part) but part is not strongest, like i brush a wall walking it down driveway and it snapped

    but its worth the money in my opinion

    I may stick with the raw especially because of that 6 month warranty but can any one else reccommend a good retailor for 50cc engines that also sells replacement parts?

    i am real happy with my powerkingshop (80cc) they also sell the 50cc(49cc) and they sell parts.

    thanks but I would rather buy from the US. Also would the 50cc engines have enough power to do some trails? Nothing to serious just bike trails through the woods may be a little bumpy though.

    zone8cycling is alot cheaper than the others though, and that warranty is looking pretty nice.

    I just realized that on their home page it says call or email for parts and pricing, so I guess you can get replacement parts

    i would go for it because of the warranty and i think that as long as you do some preventative work before you install i think all of the ht motors are ok. pull the head and cylinder and clean them and the piston, reassemble with new gaskets and motorcycle sealer, new studs and washers and nuts. do a proper breakin and it should be fine.

    What do you guys think about riding it on bike trails through the woods? The bike would have suspension but Im not trying to break anything

    Oh and can anyone confirm if this will actually fit on the bike?

    Another question, would you recommend putting this on a mountain bike or a stingray I cant decide?

    if you are gonna do off-roading...I'd stay away from the stingray.
