You can afford a 48cc 2 stroke.
You can add fiberglass (or other) packing to your muffler to reduce high pitched noise
There are posts on this site where members packed rubber between the cooling fins on the cylinder to reduce noise. This actually reduces noise at all rpms.
If all else fails, use less throttle. The China motor purrs nicely a mid-range rpms.

thanks for the info but by MTB do you mean the Grubee or the other ebay one which I think is made by zoom bikes?
