Default Re: what is the best motor available?

I just put a grubee on my beach cruzer 26 inch.

As I read the forum I began to prep the engine

as soon as it arrived. I removed the top head

and use indian head shallack on all the head gaskets

then reassembled with new bolts, not the acorn bolts

and I tourqerd em down.

my clutch was very very tight, so I had to adjust the
clutch spring. look for the instructions in the forum.

now Im fine tunning the carb.

This is all a hassle---- but you best be prepared if you
get a china grubee. they are poorly manufactured.
thats why there so chep. you can make em run but
you gott tune em up and in.

Frankly if I had to do it over I would have choosen the 99 cc from
harbor freight. 1 yr. guarantee, pull start, 4 stroke.

I'm using my ride to go to and from work, I want dependability

At this point I feel that I will be constantly messing with this
little engine, something I did not want to do.

In the weeks to come I'll probably get the 99 cc, and fabricate
motor mounts and have a weilding shop weild it on.
much more dependable, start and go.

hope this helped, ps. many riders have not had the same experience
I had with my grubee, and then many have. If you don't mind constant
tinkering with ur moto, the grubee is the way to go.
