Re: OK very overwhelming, quick question ....
Since you have experience with motors you should be ok with a HT. You have to get by the fact that the quality is not there and deal with it. This forum is filled with ways to improve your set up and make it reliable. Just be very patient and take your time getting it as right as you can and it'll pay off. My first 2 stroke was so frustrating I put it away for a couple months until I decided I was going to make it work. With the information I gathered here I was able to eliminate alot of problems before I ever fired it up. My 2-stroke has been running three years and haven't touched a thing. The 4-stroke starts up and goes each time as well. Lots of folks ready to answer any questions you have so give it a try and let us know how it goes. Pirate Cycles has been a good supplier for me and they are in your neighborhood. Good Luck! Dan
