    Hello to all motor bicyclers!

    I have been reading the forums RELIGIOUSLY for about 2 weeks and still can't soak up enough knowledge. I just want to thank everybody that helps keep the forums going. I am very impressed with the plethora of information on buying a motor kit; Furthermore, It was the reason I bought a kit. Although I wasn't sure about buying a Chinese motor because of all the defects listed, but thanks to a sticky on what to do to the motors before running them, i can rest assured my motor will live a longer life. Can't imagine buying a kit now and not replacing the head studs and head gasket, which is a sad truth to many people who haven't been to this site.
    Thanks Again!

    Welcome to MBc, Dn0rk. Wise move regarding replacing the studs and gasket, as I keep hearing (or reading) the horror stories of studs breaking, etc.
    Remember, if you don't see what you're looking for after searching, just ask a question. There are plenty of people here who can give you the answer you need.

    DnOrk...I'm very sorry. I got my notes mixedup when innitially addressing you. I'm glad that Kilroy was there to save the day. Welcome to MBc, and I too think you made a wise choice to replace the head gasket and studs. Good luck.

    Hey, man! Cool intro post...

    It sure sounds like you were a newbie who made good use of the info here and had some notion of what you were doing already when your engine arrived.

    I shouldn't speak for the staff and moderators here, but I'll bet they're proud. I think that's exactly what they want this forum to be.

    Thank you very much, BlueGoat. I apprecciate the compliment, and hope Tom and all Moderators appreciate the work I do, too. You are really not too far from where I grew up in Lake Forest, Illinois. Just round the Lake, headed toward Wisconsin, right foot in the water, and you'd run into my old driveway. Good grief, do I miss that place...and both of us know what I'm missing!

    Thanks bluegoat, Definitely appreciate the support, and the compliment, almost all the information on the forums is useful, I will be sure to post any tips for observations Ive made working on my own bike,as a way to give back to everyone out there doing their parts to keep the info stream flowing.
