First I was going to get a 4 stroke kit because I was afraid that I'd be lost with a 2 stroke but now I feel confident enough to be able to figure out what's wrong when something doesn't work as it should.
But first a few more questions
1) who's your favorite dealer and why
2) what parts should I toss immediately and replace with a higher quality item
3) if anyone in the St. Louis area is reading this, what is the attitude from the powers that be? According to MO law anything over 50cc is a motorcycle. Do the police bug you about it?

thanks and I'll keep you posted on the build.

I have bought several engines from thatsdax and parts several other vendors here, many have basically the same parts but when it comes to the engines I prefer the engine Duane at thatsdax sells, Duane answers his phone and does his best to help his customers work through any issues they may be having.

In my opinion good customer service after the sale has a lot of value and he does his best to make sure his engines are good ones.

The overall best running and smoothest running engines I have had so far have been the engines I bought from thatsdax.

Neil (motorbicycleracing) also has good engines as far as I know.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
