Default Best Jackshaft kit?

Hi, Im wondering what you guys consider the 'best' jackshaft kit?

Sickbikeparts and spookytoothcycles both seem to have the same $200 kit.
Zoombicycle has one for $130 but it doesnt quite look as good..

We have the original, we sell the best. Compare the Zoom kit to our $145 made in USA kit. There is a difference, and I will let the more neutral users comment on the differences. Thanks!

Ah so thats where I saw the neat looking kit.. I thought this type looked the best:
Sick Bike Parts
But then when I actualy go to the sickbikeparts page to buy it, it looks like a totaly diffrent mounting system, whats up with that? ( Sick Bike Parts )
Also, What will I need to mate the HD shift kit up with the pull start accessory (And maybe centrifugal clutch)

Also does anyone have pictures of what the zoombicycles and new sick bike kits look like mounted up?

Well if you go to our download page and look through the installation instructions you will see what the new kit looks like mounted up. Here is a link.
http://www.sickbikeparts.com/Manuals...%20Rev%20A.pdf
Our original kit which is what the Chinese copied and is being sold by Zoom and some others had some deficiencies so we improved it. It is now easier to install with the one piece design.

Ahh, So the vertical rectangle bracket in the 'old' kit is just to move the motor bracket out of the way of the shift kit right?
And in the sickbikes kit, It has been combined with the part that connects to the clutch side, And the magneto side attachment part has been discarded?
That does seem a little stronger.

i have a sbp kit on a 9.4 morini, the morini is brutal on parts, the sbp kit has held up to all the abuse i can throw at it, you won't find a better kit.

Hmmm. Does the SBP jackshaft kit move the motor forward enough to use the CNS racing carb without the offset intake? it doesnt look like you can really space the motor away from the jackshaft bracket at all if its one peice.
