Default boygofast 68.5cc?

i ordered a 50cc engine from boygofast, but the sticker that came with the engine says 68.5. did they send me a 66/80cc model instead? or is it the 50cc and they end that sticker out with every engine?

My limited experience with Rick at BGF is that he's not exactly on top of what gets shipped out. My money would be on them sending you the wrong item. (See last post here for my story)

I bought a 49cc slant head steel sleaved cylinder motor from bgf...one thing very differant on that motor was that the carb is mounted directly to the cylinder...."intakeless"....if thats a word...ive since sold that bike but im quite sure it dident say 68.5 on it....i wasent thrilled with that motor the fuel line had bubbles in it after it was run awhile perhaps from boiling gas in the carb from thing being bolted right to the cylinder....general quality was low...it came with a stripped head stud a float with a hole in it....more vibration than is normal for a new motor....that being said the guy is still running the thing ....but in the general "crap shoot" of buying these inexpencive mass produced motors I shot "craps" but im sure most of them are fine....anyway it sounds like you got a 68cc and you should probly just keep it.....I also decided that there wasent any good reason to go with a smaller motor....hope i was of some help....good luck......J

I've bought 4 engines from BGF and like the guys said, he is not on top of what gets shipped out. Whoever does his dropshipping just goes out to the shed and pulls a box off of the shelf and sends it out I think, lol. If you have problems with his orders though he will make it right, he always answers my e-mails and has even called me on the phone to make sure I'm happy with my orders. His name is Rik Shi and he's a pretty cool guy but he's only in this business to make a quick profit so with him you takes yo chances.

I do gotta say that my 1 purchase through him was a good one. fast shipping, and by far the best quality motor that i have bought so far. No cleaning up the ports on this one.

this is very confusing to me too, i ordered 5 kits from zoombicycles 49cc and got 68.5cc motor kits, cant say i am complaining. but they really do not feel like my true 66cc motor so which makes believe that its just the stickers that are slapped on. i just may never know?
