Hello im back after a while. Last april I bought a honda ruckus and somewhat got away from the motorized bike hobby. I just bought a tle43 clone motor and want to know how long they last on average. I also bought a gx50 clone on ebay for a backup. What gas to oil ratio should I run?, 25:1? and then 40:1?

I found something odd stamped on the motor there it says zk49cc so maybe it's 49cc not 43cc or they just used a 49cc bottom end with 43cc cylinder?

Do you think the cylinder is better quality than some cg engines? I'm talking about if its being prone to chipping or seizing. I had one of these motors for a mini chopper that was over 10 years old and it ran good.
If it is anything like the harbor freight augers they will take abuse for years
 
Noticed something with a snap ring on the fd kit it seems a size too large is it supposed to stick out that much opposite the plier holes I can see a very small gap between the bearing and the snap ring I think it's supposed to be fully in the groove but maybe it's designed like that.
