    Hello All.

    Im ready to do my first bike. I am looking for some input as to what kits are good and what to stay away from. Any feedback would be great!

    What are you looking for? 2 cycle HT kit, 4 cycle" Mounting? Little more information would surely help.

    If you search, you will find 100's if not 1,000's of posts with information on kits.

    I'm thinking 2 stroke. As far as mounting, not even sure what the options are. I have been reading tons of post trying to find out if some brands of kits are better than others, but haven't figured that out yet.

    Oh, sure, frame mounted is what I'm looking for.

    Now that we got that settled...What $ amount are you working with? The bike in my previous post, last year was close to $300.00, add some upgrades I make, another $50.00 or less. Everything was new. That bike sold for $600.00

    It's all a crapshoot with the chinagirl kits.
    Your chances improve exponentially if you patronize one of the vendors who advertise here on the forum if you review the threads.
    Good luck!

    And then you need to be careful, search vendor reviews, then flip a coin, or roll a die.
