Nope........ the CAG engine nor the ?'able "4.2HP" nor Opti 2 had anything to do with your failure, I'll garantee that there are engines out there producing way more than 4.2 HP with much better tolerances than a CAG running Opti with great success, I say the fact of the matter is you got a bad engine from the get go, which can happen to any of us and has to some......or the fuel was mixed wrong one of the two..........
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
