    What 2stroke engine are you going to buy? Some of the manufactors of the kits have installation video's that tell you everything you will need to install the kit. I have a set screw drivers, allen wrenches, T-drivers(star bits),Ajustabble wrench, a set of sockets and that takes care of all my motor installation and maintance needs. I have a sleak container a tube 4x4 in diameter and about 14 in long. I carry all i need to work on my bike with me at all times!

    Heat shrink or wire loom and cable ties to clean up the look helps also.

    Basically, you'll need a 10mm, an 8mm, a philips driver and some needle-nose pliers(for the chain master link). That's it. That'll get it on there and running. A 10mm will be your best friend from now on. The 8mm is for the gas tank and cdi mounts, but you can do those with the needle-nose, so you don't even really need the 8mm.

    You might want a second 10mm for getting the drive sprocket on...

    I never said 13,14 etc

    2x10mm's, Philips, and needle-nose, that's all I said. In the long run, you'll want more and better tools for proper bicycle maintenance, because you don't want to be riding around on a death trap, right?

    He may claim to use (1) 10mm wrench and (1) screwdriver (actually most kits require 2), building 100 bikes but I don't believe that for one second. Its a bunch of BS. Then again, if MacGyver can do all those things, I guess he can.

    Does anyone think that 100 in 100 engines that the head is on tight enough? My experience was 1 for 1 that mine wasn't, causing a blown head gasket. Now I correct that problem before installing the engine. Not to mention installing a tank (8mm) and the tensioner (14mm). This guy is full of S##t.

    ohh come on now Guys everyone knows it takes a full machine shop and every tool Snap-on and Park make to install a 2stroke made in china motor in a bicycle frame.
    Now you have to use a Tig welder from Miller as no other welder will work.
