Default Re: What typically fails on a ChinaGirl motorized bike

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.
I actually agree with you about the reliability and waiting for parts all the time. I'm going 4 stroke as well, with a 98cc flathead Lifan (honda clone similar to the predator line). I also agree about the cost factor. Spend a little more upfront, but spend a lot less later, and you get to drive your bike way more often to boot. We got off on the wrong foot before, but I apologize. I can rub people the wrong way sometimes.
