    Although yours may or turned out to be junk, many of us have bought the same kits, myself included. No matter what HT kit you buy, how it is installed will be major a factor. I've bought 4 kits and other then minor problems on the first build (coil), I've had NO problems on the remaining 3. I have bought from only two distributors, one I will not buy so much as a screw from again. Saying that, I don't have extensive experience from one distributor to the other, although reading here on the forum some kits seem to excel over others. All HT kits NEED some modifications done to them right out of the $0.02

    With EBay, it's luck of the draw.
    The vendors that advertise on this site give good service because they know you will tell us if they don't.

    Personally, I have had good luck with Dax. I recently helped a friend install a Bikeberry. I was impressed with the quality on this one also. There are others that are good too.

    Here is the link

    I myself have never dealt with or even heard of them. There are many good vendors and I can only comment on those that I personally have had dealings with. I bought my first engine from "luckyearlybird" off of E-bay, I would not so much as buy a dollar for a dime from them, it's the principle of what happened. In fact I go out of my way to trash them as a reputable company, which they are NOT. Now I can only speak for one...Powerkingshop on E-bay, although I do think they are affiliated with a vendor that advertises here.

    I had a rear sprocket that was defective from the factory, I contacted then, sent me a replacement, in just days. I just trashed the old sprocket as they didn't want it back, saving me the shipping cost.

    I got my kit from The installation instructions that came with the kit suck but the motor and parts were as good as I expected them to be. No real problems to speak of outside of install problems.

    In MY opinion,,, with these kits, you get what you pay for !
    You will get the best service from a well known Japanese brand engine. Yes,,, they cost more, but not in the long run. I have a Robin/Subaru motor that is 25-30 years old & still runs great !
