    I know it's an old thread but in response to gothicguy64 and his claim that:

    quote: when i had bike working i used to be able to spin rear wheel at lights from off an i pedalled 1/2 way across lights an dropped clutch an opened throttle.

    Reading the above, i hopelessly tried to keep a mouthful of coffee within the borders of my lips, but failed, laughing so hard that the computer screen got sprayed; voiding my warranty.

    grrrr,,, now the monitor is having pixelation issues.

    Oh my word we should be impressed, for it gives all of us hope that our little bicycle engines can have such astonishing power; the power to spin the rear; the power to smoke that tyre; the power to place fear in the hearts of every law abiding pedestrian as a motor bicyclist opens the throttle.

    hey mate,
    my mate ordered a 50cc hp2 rock solid engine,he payed $352 ecl. postage,he only just started running it in tonight as he just finished building it up., it has great quality parts, dellorto carby is awsome, i reckon deffently worth the money and paying for quality for sure. hope this helps.

    Heck if im gonna pay 352 dollars for a china girl motor. I' will walk first they all made in china using pot metal not any difference in any of them except the name. And the name dont make them run any better. It depends on how well you break them in and how good you are at replacing with quality hardware and thats it. I got a 49cc bgf motor i bought 3 yrs ago and it still runs. Thank you very much when u break them in. Dont gun them dont wot them add a little extra oil to gas. And after break in then use the amount of oil they require for break in as your normal amount . And remember these ARE NOT harleys they are
    PEDAL ASSIST MOTORS. And should be run as such and for 352 dollars you can find a good motor setup from dax or statton or if you are lucky find you a good used moped ...
