Default Re: Yet, another newbie with questions

Most of the kits are the same basic kits from China.

It seems like some dealers get kits from different factories, which will produce different quality.

One dealer with a high-quality reputation motor is Chris Hill. he actually works on the motors himself before selling them I guess. A little more spendy than the rest. CH80 Bicycle Engine Kits by Chris Hill, Motorized Bicycles, Bike Engine, Bike Motor, Bicycle Motor kit I don't have any first hand experience with him though.

Other than that, I think it probably comes more to service than anything with the China motors.

I know Easy Rider is using a Morini (i thinK) motor. Something like 6hp on a 50cc motor. Might be something to look into if you've got the cash.
