    Depends on your budget. You can get a 2 cycle frame mount kit for relatively cheap, but they tend to need more maintenance. A 4 cycle frame kit will be more expensive, but less finicky.

    If you're going two-cycle, the quality of any kit is the same - hit or miss. Choose a vendor from the sponsors here, make sure you get decent warranty service. On that machine, you will need to fabricate some engine mounts, and you'll want a smaller sprocket. The kits come with a 44T, and I think you want a 27T, if I remember reading others' comments.

    I agree with Venice,I currently have six bikes all 2 strokes,and they all start up everytime.I've never owned a 4 stroke so I cant speak on them but I love my 2 strokers.

    skyhawks are simply less powerful than pks. Ive owned 3 skyhawks and though they run a little smoother, none of them were as powerful as any of the 14 pks I've used.
