    Anything made by Tanaka or Subaru.
    The newest of the new Chinese 2-strokes have not been out long enough to let anybody beat one up and tell the story. They seem to be greatly improved though.

    From what I've seen, GEBE and Staton make the most dependable kits. Tanaka, Robin/Subaru, Mitsubishi, and Honda make the most reliable engines.

    Hi Billy, for my 25 yr old daughter, I just built up a Subaru/Robin powered BikeMotorParts Friction Drive. The centrifucal clutch makes things much easier for her and she likes the smooth quiet performance. No problems and it's got around 100 miles so far. I did put a MTB suspension fork w/ Sturmey/Archer front drum brake for comfort & safety. Of course it's also got thorn resistant tubes and Continental tires. Bike is a 24" Huffy Cranbrook girl's model.

    www.thatsdax.com sells a single speed in frame 4 stroke. The engine has a great reputation and I'd buy in a heartbeat but I'm holding out for a shift kit version.

    The engine has a 1year warranty and unlike other certain vendors who claim a 6 mos warranty on their 2 stroke engines, DAX will honor the warranty. They do what they say and go out of their way to please their customer. Yes, I do rip into Dax for the shifter kit they sell but that's another issue and doesn't detract me from recommending their other products.
