    i'm planning to bould my first motorbike, and i'm thinking about getting an starfire engine. it suppuosed to be a second generation 48cc with 3.3HP. price is around 200 US.

    has anyone tried this engine?
    is it good?
    since it's my first build, should I go for a 2.2HP instead?

    thanks in advance.

    well i know this much my 41cc engine is very high quality but only makes 2.5 horsepower stock so that engine definitly makes some good power

    i am however unfamiliar with that engine brand and cannot comment on the reliability.

    also i would go with the most power but thats always my answer to the question of do i want the faster one or the slower one :)
