    Hello All

    With the controversy surrounding two strokes in our area and the very real possibility we won't be able to purchase them in Canada in the future, I have been looking for a spare 49cc motor. I have contacted several Canadian and US motor bicycle dealers asking about purchasing one, but none of them ever bothered to reply to an email. Seems as something unique to motorbicycling to provide no or poor customer service. Perhaps there is just such a huge mark up an profit on these that some distributors don't need the sales? In any case if anyone on here knows on here I might get a complete 49cc motor I'd be very happy to buy one. Of course a four stroke that would interchange would be an option as well. Now if I could only get a dealer to reply to an email...

    question started some speculation in my head - why not a 4-stroke exactly shaped like the HT, even if it had to be a twin cylinder to get the power right?

    anyone heard of such a thing?

    on several ebay sites I buy from they have the little 49cc motors - google should bring them up

    Sorry not getting some of these replies, I'm realy just looking for someone who sells replacement 49cc motors complete and ready to go. Was I not clear in my original post?

    Try this website. Type in your query (motored bike) and the country you reside in (canada) and you might just find your answer.

    Put a little effort in yourself, ya hoser.

    The same thing is already happening in Australia. In only a few short months, there will be a nation wide ban on motorised bicycle engines, which means that the importers will no longer stock replacement engines or spare parts.

    Time to get all of your spare parts whilst you still can.

    Yeah tired that thanks, with poor results and no reply from the found dealers, thus the reason for asking on here where I was hoping for a serious reply. I guess I was expecting too much.

    Yes there's a move on here in Canada as well with an eventual ban on all two strokes.. It boggles the mind when one thinks of all of the lawnmowers, weed wahckers, and other two strokes out there...

    Did manage to get a quote on a replacement 66cc engine available in Canada, so overall it worked out well enough off of this forum.

    You will find a lot of very useful information on this forum, as well as a lot of very knowledgeable people on this forum.

    That's what makes this forum so good.

    I'm really glad I live in a country with something vaguely reminiscent of freedom

    The amount of people who are tearing up their American citizenship and leaving the United States (to live in a country with something vaguely reminiscent of freedom) is quite surprising; considering that the American government keeps beating it's chest and purporting the U.S. as the bastion of freedom and liberty.

    Australia is going down the same route as America with government policy etc, though it's not surprising, considering the CIA has heavily embedded itself in the political spectrum of this country, though doing so behind the scenes.

    I'm already making plans to move out of my location (Victoria) in the lower south eastern state of Australia, and make the move to far north Queensland; where the tentacles of government do not have such a vice tight grip on every aspect of life.
