Default Best Kits to buy

I'm new to the motorbike hype and decided that it's time to build one. I'm looking for a good quality kit for under $200. Preferably a two stroke motor and 80/66cc is somewhat of a requirement. I've heard the mixed opinions of Grubee kits and "Honda this" and "Honda that". I'm open to any recommendations that are in my price range.


Also, I'm thinking of using a Diamondback Kalamar Hybrid bike. Should I use a MTB or would this be fine?

Default Re: Best Kits to buy

The general consensus around here is that ALL the Chinese engines are a crap-shoot. None of them should be used right out of the box.

I would say to get the cheapest one you can find, and put the money that you save into upgrading it.

From the pictures that I saw of the Diamondback Kalamar Hybrid bike, I would say that you'd have a hard time fitting the engine in that frame.

Print out this template to see if it will fit your frame
