depends on how far you want to go, I suggest trail bike kits, there are several "stages"

just looked on planet minis. there's a takegawa 88 for sale but it's in Maryland. I don't have pay pal or anything and would rather find something local/cash if I'm going to go that route.

The motor on my bike now runs fine, it's just lacking .

My buddy puchased what I believe was an 88cc kit for his XR70 but ended up running into a different issue and not installing it. He bought a 125cc instead and installed that. Hes looking for a buyer for his XR70 engine and race head. I can get more details if you're interested. I know the race head price new is something like $170 and hes only asking $120 for that.

We shall talk, good sir. How much is the stage 2 kit? What all goes into the install? I'm trying to learn my way around a motor a little bit.

Funny thing is, I know 3000 hp diesels in and out but don't know a 50cc 4 stroke

I can give you an extra xr 70 engine, high flow oil pump installed, and race head for 200 bucks if your interested. Just ask if you want to come take a look.

Yes it should. I believe its an 03, was working perfectly so we decided to break it.

I would recommend it. Also, the engine has the 88cc kit halfway installed. You can talk with TheMagicMan and i'm sure he'd be able to finish it up.

It was running a cheap Mikuni knockoff from eBay with no problems. I believe it was the 24mm and around $35 bucks or so. Although, with the cash you're saving I would drop the coin for a legit one that would be easier to tune and jet.
