Default Re: cheapest kits

Welcome Meldbid, I just want to say that cheapest isn't always the best route. For example if you ride like me, a cheap motor will last only a few months. Thank goodness I have a friend that has a complete machine shop and helped me rebuild my old chinese motor with high quality bearings. I know that the cheap motors come with a bushing (which blows out after a few months of hard riding) instead of a needle bearing. If you decide to get a inexpensive motor, break it in slowly and try not to go WOT at all and you should get a few thousand miles out of the motor.
