The china girl 2 strokes are notoriously un reliable in stock form.
I've never seen one that worked 100% right out of the box with no modifications or work needed.
When I hear comments like that, I think that person would be better off buying a ready made moped.

The tinkering is part of this sport/art/hobby, any one can just BUY a ready made bike, but working out the build, working out the flaws is what makes this so satisfying.
"I built it myself, worked out all the bugs and got it to run great"

Lets face it, what can you really expect from a Chinese copy of a 65+ year old Russian design bicycle engine that the moto bike industry latched on to?
For $180.00 for the full kit or $120 for just the engine? Your lucky it starts.
I'd like to get my hands on the Russian version.
