You are over thinking it, I have been through a few gas spikes already
over the last 5 years.
Cops don't enforce C.A.R.B. laws, B.A.R. does.
The 49 cc Huasheng motor is really good but they aren't CARB approved
which makes them just as illegal in CA as a 2 stroke bicycle engine.
You would have to buy a Honda GXH 50 to get a CARB approved 4 stroke engine.
