It takes a great amount of care to install a china kit. I did not know this when I bought my first kit, and I had some troubles with it. The difference is, I knew and accepted it as user error instead of blaming the kit/manufacturer/vendor.
Why should I get mad? If you want to use it on the sidewalk for 5 minutes its probably ok, but I used it as motorcycle with higher top speeds and long distance and that thing was extremely unreliable. Anyways, I got something great now. Everybody asking me to build one of those bikes, I tell them to forget about the China Kits and invest in a small 4 Stroke instead. Cost more, but in the end its cheaper and less headache and driving instead of repairing and waiting for parts.
My opinion: Dont buy a china Kit at all. I would never do it again.
