The answer/answers to the questions you asked here all depend on what you are wanting.

1. do you want a 2 stroke set up

2. do you want a 4 stroke set up

3. do you plan to fabricate parts and pieces..... mounts ect.

I can tell you that you will probably not find an engine kit for the $250 or under you have to spend unless you go with a China Girl 2 stroke kit off ebay or even better has a Starfire Grubee Kit on sale right now for $150 and then you can do some other upgrades to it with the extra $80+ you'll have left, like maybe an expansion chamber exhaust from Sick Bike Parts or when you order the kit from pirate go ahead and get one of the Manic Machanic Ported intakes too, and with a couple other mods you should have a very nice running engine.

Just my advice and opinions here nothing more nothing less.........

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
