    I bought a kit from bikeengines.net and it every single component is a piece of crap. The engine's gearbox is totally screwed up and I can't even open it to try and fix it because the gearbox's screws are torn so you can't unscrew them. They are rusted as well. Half the screws I recieved were rusted. The gearbox screams like ****. The chain is crappy. The tensioner is worth maybe $1.50 at best. Do not buy from this company.

    Don't run it! Give them a call and explain the situation.

    It looks like everyone just plain accepts chinese anything is basic crap, though the engines seem to be reliable. My gearbox however for the hua sheng is the hoot POS and everyone seems to agree it's just that - a POS. It's loud as **** and might last me 100 miles if I'm lucky. My friends 500cc motorcycle makes much less noise than my bicycle.

    Wrong bud I dont think any one on this site would accept rusty hardware or striped screws send it back go with a new supplier. They say you get what you pay for if the kits are cheaper than any one else than they are just that. Don't give in get it right and start the addiction.
