    hi my name is Mark Black and i go by the handle of Blackmarkus. This is the first forum i have ever posted on. I have some mechanical skill and knowledge. i Don't know very much about 2 stroke engines. i am currently riding my first motorised pushbike ,it is a Dunlop Scout 26' MTB with a 48cc engine . I absolutely love to ride it, but unfortunately it has become noisy and has lost power, I think the bearings are shot. I'm going to purchase a new engine then attempt a rebuild of the other engine. I'm looking at the Grubee GT5 Gen 3 ,I am wondering if thats the best choice.
    I Live on the Gold Coast Australia which is awesome for riding

    The Frame-mount area and MotoredBiking Parts & Accessories would be the places to look at various engines.
