getting a good engine that has good internals and fairly good balance is an important thing, the foundation has to be good or all the rest dont matter much just like anything else in life.

The engines thatsdax sells are very good ones, good cranks, good bearings and good gaskets other than the intake gasket which I always make my own.

I know there are other engine sellers out there that may have engines that are very good platforms also, but lately the dax engines have ben the overall best I have had.


Ok thanks,

yeah i have two motors coming from amazon right now. They are flying horse 66/80cc from bikeberry. Would you recommend canceling those and ordering from dax then?
