Sorry no one has gotten back to you yet. Must have been a busy weekend for some of the regulars. There is a lot of good information available here for the new comer to this hobby. Here's a link you might find interesting.
One of the decisions you'll need to make is if you want to go with a 2 cycle engine or a 4cycle. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. You'll need to do some reading and decide for yourself on that issue. Don't get in a hurry to order a kit; read a lot first before you spend your $. Always feel free to ask questions here before making a purchase or if you have problems with the kit you decide on. Good luck, have fun.

I got a kings engine , in the long run, matched the intake , exaust ports. marked at TDC ,for intake side shaved the protruding piston skirt to match opening. Last never made it to a tuned pipe , would love to try one though. I just opened up the baffle on the muffler a little at a time, drilled holes. 5000 miles , runs just fine on mine. Lots of good info here, not all of the ch motors have the piston skirt partially blocking the intake opening. Some designs put the intake port lower on the jug casting clearing the port perfectly already. The kings I bought is a bushed engine, Its been just fine . I think they are all good motors though . Wouldn't worry to much, but do check around , I have heard some kits were cheesier more or less. Good luck ride safe I know you will have fun!!!!!!!!!!
