Re: Hello from Texas
welcome fellow Texan, Im partial myself to the dax F80/GenIV 40mm stroke engines, I have others and am currently tinkering with an ebay kit with what some are calling a Half Breed engine.
The GenIV engi es have the best balanced cranks of any of the engines Ive run, not hard to make a omfortable 40mph cruiser with them and their have good quality bearings.
Im not I to the electric stuff myself and probably never will be until I need one of those mobility scooters...!
Batteries will never reace internal combustion engines but for people who dont ride long distance and live in the city they're great.
Ill take the engines myself and if you go that way I'll tell you that I dont think you would regret the dax 40mm stroke engine.
There may be other s as good but the ones dax sells are the best Ive used.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
