Default Re: New bike and new fan of them!

Welcome to the addiction!
Errr... um.. I mean welcome to the forum!
Yeah, that's it...
I hope that you enjoy this place, as well as your new bike.
These engines are made in many different factories around China.
They all look very similar on outward appearance and the internals too.
The fine details of the pistons and cylinders can vary greatly though depending on which factory made the engine.
If there is no identification plate on the sprocket cover stating where the engine came from then determining what factory made it it boils down to subtle appearances and educated speculation.
"It's a chinagirl. It's a sometimes fun little engine that often will break your heart. It's disposable.

Does not come with a fortune cookie."
