Come on man, you get a motor and all the other parts to motorize a bike for under $200???? That is pretty much chump change man... The manufacturing of the motors, the casting and finishing is rough on all of them, you get what you pay for...
Unfortunately for those that don't want to take the time to inspect and correct and manually finish the manufacture of the parts that are delivered in rough condition, there really isn't a source to buy a kit that has been finished and manufactured with higher quality control. If you want that you have to buy a motor from one of the guys the buy the stock china girl motors and go through them and take care of all that stuff before they resell them to you...
