    if it aint one thing it's 'tuther. first, my fork keeps tightening up...then I'm leaking gas. then bolts fall out and it takes me 20 minutes to find out were they came from then my front disk brake gets messed up. then the rear wheel gets out of wack. Most of these are operator error and no fault of the engine itself but sometimes I just want to toss my bike in the river and buy a $300 moped from craigslist. sorry, had to vent.
    carry on

    The moped would be great for a bit and then you would be in the same mess.
    You need to get into a maintenance plan.

    I was driving a 30 yr old motorbike and got feeling the same way.
    Bought a $5000 street legal 450 Husaberg MX bike and only got one season out of it. Connecting rod broke, $3000+ to repair.

    Back to the 30yr old streetbike...

    Yeah...you're right. It's nothing I can't fix and little iritations happen with even the best built machine. I've heard horror stories about these kits but I never had an issue with the engine so I guess I'm lucky. Still looking to trade it though. I kinda want to futz with something different this spring.
