I dont know your level of riding experience, but if this is your first time riding any sort of motorbike, I wouldnt recommend jumping straight from a 2 stroke to a predator. gain some more riding experience with your current bike first. I would say at least get your money's worth out of the engine you have. I have been riding bicycles with the 2 stroke engines for almost 3 years, and just now feeling comfortable with installing a more powerful engine. Installing a predator is also much more expensive than a kit build. just for the engine, transmission, and a larger rear sprocket to get the gear ratio I want, is going to cost me almost $400. Worth it for the performance and reliability I will get, but if I had just built this bike, I would consider it a waste of money. However, my current engine is a year old, and I wont need any kit parts except for the larger sprocket for my rear wheel.
