    I'm trying to decide between the Rawmotors.com Silver 66/80cc and the Jet 66/80cc from kingsmotorbikes.com, (both are 2-strokes).

    There isn't much to distinguish these two kits..at least from my point of view. They also both cost around the same, and are chinese made.

    Other Similarities (perhaps not identical) include the CDI, carburetor, clutch lever and assembly, 44 tooth sprocket, 415 chain, fuel valve, mounting hardware, etc. Moreover, fuel efficiency and HP are both rated around the same.

    There are, however, a few seemingly insignificant differences. I don't know if any of these are important, but the Raw kit comes with a Magneto kill switch on the throttle. The Jet's throttle is an Accelograph, with what appears to be a generic kill switch (which I've heard bad reviews about). Additionally, the Jet's motor head is angled, and the Raw's is standard. On the other hand, Raw has a full 6 month warranty, and Jet has no warranty.

    Any Thoughts?

    personally i'd go with the one with the warranty. both of those engines really look the same, but you can never tell. i never heard anything bad about raw motors, but then again, i ain't really heard too much about them

    I have purchased 3 of their 66/80cc slant head kits and have been well satisfied. I had a question about the order and sent them an email on a Saturday and got an answer from them the same day. So far no problems with any of the motors.

    I actually bought mine on e-bay about a year 1/2 ago....They dont sell on e-bay anymore and there cost has gone up....It might not even be the same seller anymore....Yes im a lucky one....I figured I better buy 2 kits just incase one of the engines went bad,but they are such good engines,I cant wear this on out so I have the spare laying around....
    I have bought around 7 or so kits over the years and the Raw is by far the best motor I have owned....They also just sell the replacement engines for 79.00....
