    Just got in a new set of kits - all were good except that the factory had failed to grease the bevel gears. Last order was good, but order before that also had no grease and two gears completely stripped all the teeth off in less than a week. I then went into the boxes and greased all the remaining motors, so no problems after that.

    Something that needs checking before starting the motor from a new kit.

    just built a 2-stroke baysider, brakes are a bit weak and while it is set up like a cruiser, that frame has very little room for a motor

    Thanks for the review. I'm changing that bike to a firmstrong urban man cruiser.
