Re: King's motor ripoff
More on gasbike.net , (Kings) and others - I've heard lots about their leaky tanks, (in particular the 4L version).
2/3 that I've heard of leak at the mounting bolts. Poor support again - as far as I know they've still done nothing to rectify the problem, after 2-3 weeks.
I almost ordered one last week, but thanks to warnings from others elsewhere, decided against it and bought a 3L tank from dax instead. (And I really wanted a 4L tank.)
At least Duane at dax provides decent support.
For all other parts, I'll deal mainly with Rock Solid Engines in future.
Bought my engine kit from ZBox, but they don't impress me much either. Got a dud tensioner roller a couple of weeks ago. Warren did replace it, but was slow, almost rude, no 'sorry' or anything and, in my opinion, he should have refunded my return postage for his error. The roller had a major casting flaw on the surface the chain rolls on leaving a large flat-spot almost right through to the bearing. You couldn't miss it. I reckon if he's too slack to even glance at the things he sends, he should bear the cost, not us.
