Re: This is the kit I'm getting, it's not gonna explode on me, is it?
Every kit is a crap shoot. Some are awesome for 2000+ miles, some last 200 feet.
That's why it is best to buy from a reputable vendor that will warranty a bad engine or at least supply the repair parts free. Sometimes they will even help you diagnose the problem over the phone!
Thats Dax and Pirate Cycles are good. I am sure that other folks will chime in with other good vendors too.
Remember, quality is not cheap and cheap is not quality.
Read my "signature" line too.
