Default best price on grubee gt5?

Really like the grubee GT5 kit I got from King motors...

I ordered a cheaper motor but they found out they were out of the one I ordered so upgraded me to a GT5 - I loved the kit!

I would like to get a good price on another - any suggestions!

All 2 stroke kits are being outlawed by the EPA, no new ones for 2010. They still have leftover 2 strokes at most vendors. However, there are 4 stroke kits, they cost about $350, but will last way longer than 2 strokes. Common 4 strokes are the Huasheng and Dax Titan. The Titan is essentially an upgraded Huasheng. So you can check those out.

mojo - if you can't substantiate, don't state.

EVERY year we get the same panic story, EVERY year we ask for concrete proof - any actual substantiation for the rumors generated by a few unscrupulous four-stroke vendors, EVERY year we get nothing but more rumors and hearsay... yet the engines are always still available.

It's true the supply dwindles and the price goes up about this time of year - but that's got much more to do with the summer riding season and supply and demand than anything else. I suspect were any of this founded in fact - actual proof (copies of EPA regulation, licensing, tariffs, etc.) would be posted all over the net, yet there's nothing but rumor.

Instead what we get is this: EPA ban two-stroke - Google Search - with the same old panic every year like clockwork for at least the past decade with the US Environmental Protection Agency itself saying nothing at all...

I'm still waiting for someone to prove me wrong...

Like I said in another thread, a few dealers who are trying to push 4 strokes keep saying "the sky is falling" on 2 strokes. But others continue to import them by the container full.
