    and for what kind of commute?

    50cc is over 40% larger than the 35, weighs a lot more with a much bigger profile. Two completely different critters.

    Oh sorry, this would be for fun driving but it has to be reliable for long commutes. It will also be used with the DAX chain drive rear mount kit. I know they are completely different, but my problem is that the Honda is, of course, very reliable. The downside is it has lower HP. The Titan on the other hand, is more powerful. The only problem with the Titan is that it is (from what i can see) made in china and not reliable compared to the Honda.

    The Titan can be every bit as reliable as the Honda. There's members here with over 10,000 miles on those chinese 4-strokes.

    Mine has over 5K on it, eats 50 mile rides for breakfast.

    Here is what gets me though. The original HS engines are not very good, so how are Titans so reliable?

    Titans are just rebadged HS. Don't know where you get the idea that HS aren't reliable, there's evidence to the contrary all over this forum.

    Ive heard the term 'Rebandaged' used quite often for the Titans. Can someone please go into detail about what he does to rebandage them?

    Rebadged, not rebandaged. Rebadged means it has a Titan sticker put on it. It's still a Huasheng.

    Per Pirate's site:
    Gas tank not included

    Clutch not included

    Either vendor is good IMO but you gonna need a gas tank and a clutch.

    So it seems DAX is the way to go. How do i prevent the engines from over revving and breaking? I cant just stop the throttle cause then i will have no power for hills...

    The same way the rest of us do it: Don't overrev them! By knowing your gear ratios, you know how fast is too fast for the engine.

    I've set my own gear ratio in top gear at a point where overspeeding my engine is pretty much impossible unless I'm going downhill.
    On a flat, my engine cannot exceed 7800RPM because it doesn't have enough power to do so. 40MPH = 8000RPM, I can only do 39.
