Hey seems you found the answer it will work. If you change the oil every 250 miles adjust valves and don't beat on it it will last longer than a
CG any day of the week. A CG will have to be rebuilt completely to get 10k. There's a reason manufacturers moved away from making 2 stroke street motorcycles.

just to update this, Sadly the offset mount did not work, the engine was half inch to high, BUT i did get it mounted

i used a flat bar on both top and bottom then put the 4 stroke engine mount on top of the flat bar and used Flat style U bolts to hold it all in place.

CGs are crap, but that is due to their penny pinching manufacturing and assembly - not just because they are 2stroke. The main reason manufacturers moved from 2strokes was emissions lol.

You can make a super reliable chinagirl for about $150 extra...balanced crank, steel G5 cylinder, real snap clips instead of the stock e clips, and caber rings would last at least 2-3 times longer than a normal chinagirl engine but still make more power, be smaller, and weigh less than the 49cc 4stroke. Add things like CNC throttle to replace the crappy plastic throttle and a hub adapter and you are at around $375 total kit price for a way more reliable kit based on a triple40. On even a cheap $100 bike plus a modest $75 assembly fee though you'd have to ask $550 for that reliable but still stock performance bike so when new buyers see similar performance everywhere for $350 its hard to sell that untangeble reliability factor for an extra $200 when newbies think stock will be "good enough" if they take it easy. Then after all that if you do sell it you only make $75 on a $550 bike, vs the cheap guy who throws a $99 kit on a $99 bicycle and sells for $350, making double the profit on a $350 piece of junk then you make on your nice $550 reliable build.

Unfortunately most people don't want to spend nearly $400 for a stock performing kit no matter how reliable it is - they go for the garbage $99 amazon/ebay special with terrible quality control, casting flash everywhere, improper TQ, cheap hardware, improper installation, etc. People in general make bad decisions - its way easier to sell a cheap unreliable bike with a few look good/go-fast mods then a much better assembled and more reliable bike for the same price but that still has stock performance.

I think the HS142 with a belt drive trans is one of the best motor combos for MBs for a majority of people needing it for commuting. Super reliable, cheap, fits in many frames, and is easy to ride and maintain. Everyone wants to go 40+mph for pennies though, so a quiet and tame 30mph 4stroke that costs more money isn't as "cool" as a cheap but fast and loud 2stroke.
