I've just bought an 80cc kit today from PowerKingshop on Ebay, and am wondering what miles people have on their Chinese two stroke? I've been reading like crazy, and with some TLC these motors might last quite awhile? What miles do you have on yours? :ride2:

less than 500 i'm sure.

I used to ride mine a few miles every day but I don't make long trips. Then I started to build alternate engine bikes and hardly ever take the china bike out of the shed. I try to make the six mile round trip to the hardware store once a week but some weeks I have missed.

BoyGoFast Over 5000 Miles close to 5100. 80cc. Biggest crank and transition ports(sides of barrel into crank case)I have seen. Square with a long stroke barrel. kinda wiers. lotsa torque. Paid 175 guess that was alright. She still cruises on ..up big hills and such.put rings in her after I cleared 5k.

465 miles on a 49cc from Powerking since 06/08. I ride approx 6 miles a day M-F for work. So far reliable and impressive performance.

I'm approaching 200 miles on my BGF 50 cc. Still breaking it in. I might go out and refill my truck for the first time in almost a month and get another 2 gallons of gas for the bike tomorrow! (^)

kingsmotorbikes 70cc #1: installed new 4 years ago. miles? lets see....

distance to/from work (when still in tucson) round-trip: 18.9miles X 5 days/wk x 52 weeks x 4 years = 19,656. wait....can that be right? i hardly ever used the car to go to work, and i didnt count extra 6th workdays, trips to store/joyriding/probation office, etc. can that be right? hmmmm....
i have replaced all gaskets, cdi (1x) magneto (1x) lots of plugs, but the bushing motor is still going strong. is this possible? has to be.

kingsmotorbikes 70cc #2: miles unknown. installed used a year ago. dude i got it from used it as daily driver for two years.

I'd guess I got a total of around 1500mi out of my motor, plus the 1000+ that was already on it when I got it. The motor is now trashed (piston ring destroyed the cylinder)

New motor on the way...
