Re: These China Wonders
Welcome to the forum.
You are correct. Installed properly and maintained there is no reason you can't expect a long and healthy life from a Chinese 2 stroke. There are many reported cases of multi-thousand mile bikes here. But they are machines and require care. That doesn't mean you have to work on it every day but just some common sense applied and they will serve you well.
Good luck, have fun and ride safe.
