    I now have a Schwinn Riverside 26 " beach cruiser with a 2 stroke and what to convert it to 4 Stroke.

    What is the Best kit to get.

    I ride slow and use it to go up Med grades hills at time .

    Thanks in advance.

    I like the axcle Hub vice what i have now is usual one you get with the 2 stroke kit.

    Any input greatly appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    ok...this needs clarifying....

    your title sounds like youre attempting to turn a 2 stroke into a 4-stroke....possible with some engines...

    unfortunately,(for me, i like doing that sorta stuff) it appears you just want advice for a different engine altogether... :(

    honda honda honda honda honda honda kits, iunno about, dont need em...but honda honda honda honda for power :)

    I was just kidding. You can't go wrong with a Honda engine although I like the HS and HF engines too. Everyone has there own favorite.

    Just add overhead cams, some valves, an rearrange the carby an exhaust in other places. Fill in the ports an add sump oil.

    I have a 4 stroke installed on my 26" Beach Cruiser with 44 tooth rear sprocket.

    I weight 225 LBS what sprocket should I get so It will run and climb like your video.

    I like to just get on the Bike and go.

    With the current set=up I pedal to get going then and power.

    It seems to slip a lot?

    Thanks in advance
