    ok. i will ad to this. as i go. just writine about it makes me get all steamed up:-|

    ok. here goes. opened the engine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLPTkVOJ4es
    scratched chain guard. put engine on- not lone enough bolts (i can live with that) but what really gets me mad, is that they didnt include and fargon bolts to go into the bottom of the freakin engine, to mount it to the plate!! they shorted me 4 lock washers, that go on the tank. the cranks i got are round, with a horizontal hole drilled, so it will fit on a square shaft. (no bolts included) they threaded the left peddel bad. and when i fixed ALL this, it loosened the righ stud bolt, cause the cranks rubbed the bolt. thus causing the left crank to flop and be usless. the only way the right crank worked, is because of the chain. i will add the gearbox issue once i cool down.......

    gearbox
    ok. the gear box is an all in all p.o.s. i had to replace the keys 3 times, before my dad used his grinder, and a huge hardened lockwasher. to replace all the keys, cause they kept breaking. and not to mention the gearbox has a god aful squealing noise, that will blow yr ear out. and has given me a migrane. that all i have to say about it. if i say anything else, i might get kicked from the site...

    By the sounds of it it's an exceptionally bad idea to buy anything from BoyGoFast.Were they aware u were going to do a review for MBc when they sold u the kit...did u tell them?

    That's what i was thinking....next time anything like this happens always mention BEFORE the fact that your going to write a review.

    But, if you mention before hand that you are going to write a review - Yes, they may take more care and give you a product of higher quality. But then the review is not a review of the general quality of the product they sell to others.

    correct. the box was sealed from china. so he really should be talking to his importers. or trade for new stock!!!

    Don't forget to rate him on ebay too. He has a 99% aproval rating, so either it's true everyone else gets great stuff and your a one off problem, or it's manipulated, or unhapppy people aren't rating.

    Go ahead and leave him a negative feedback. Ebay no longer lets sellers give negative feedbacks to retaliate.

    Actually that noise is quite common from the 4 stroke gearboxes.

    Yikes, thanks for the valuable information about BGF's 4 stroke kits.

    BFG ain't all that bad

    I have bought over 50-2 strokes from this guy...most were better than others advertised on here....Not only bgf but numerous other sites are selling the 4 stroke kits with the hoot gearbox....If you had researched this site before buying, you would have found that the engines are quite good , but the hoot gearboxes are a piece of **** and always will be......I have bought several 4 stroke kits from bicycle-engines.com.(birddog), they cost quite a bit more but come with the stage 3 gearbox , which is a winner.....Problem is they have been out of stock for months with no date to expect them...

    My complaint is not with the products, ever seller has about the same,Chinese JUNK. My problem is that "family" BGF and "luckyearlybird" does not stand behind their product. I'd just as place a two dollar bet on the craps table...HI-LO and I'd get a better chance to win. Heck I'll parlay it every time. Hit the parlay 3 times in 1 day..wish I had more then $2.00 bet on the table. Net $1320.00
