Strange as it may sound most of the 4 stroke kits fail very quickly compared to 2 stroke due to poor gearbox design. The half dozen guys I know who bought chinese 4 stroke kits got couple hundred miles at most while my 2 strokes went thousands.

If you pay nearly a grand for the new upgraded gearbox setups, go with DAX rear mount (pocket/atv gearbox), or DIY, then you can do better but these are special cases.
