4 stroke is what it has but maybe a 125 cc 2 stroke motor or a 250cc 2 stroke motor replacement???

I think everyone should have to start with something like this to learn on for a year.

I was wanting to have parts, mods, available, and specialize in the bike and only this bike! Just want to be involved in bikes somehow! I don't think it's worth anymore than what I paid for it; it's the shipping that bites!

I've been kind of busy working at my brothers coin operated car wash in N houston(at west rd and airline) while he's gone to Cambodia on church work. So when I've gotten home, I've been a little tired to work on the bike! lol

I guess I had sounded kind of sarcastic about the bike as I ran into some minor problems that kind of me off for something being new! Stupid stuff: main gas line had a cut in it, float bowl drain screw was hanging by a thread leaking, shifter was bent, exhaust too close to plastic faring warping it, eletrical problem(my fault), rear seat release cable messed up, and a couple others. Nothing major by any means so far. I'm sure that with each bike, comes its own issues! However, I'm still having a little fun doing something, problem solving has its own privelges/rewards of accomplishment. I'll try to finish up on it this afternoon and give it a good test run, and write later this evening. Have a great day EVERYONE!
The trick to selling something like this is to get hooked up with a distributor in China and buy a shipping container full of them all at once. Big investment but if you're going to sell them that's the way to go, then you can have a handfull of them to use as parts bikes too for the one's you sell.

you can buy those over on harwin. they sell for 700-1300 depending on where you go and how much you haggle. they're made by the same companies that make the chinese pocketbikes....and if you've owned one of those i'm sure you weren't impressed with the quality...i'd be scared to be on a road legal bike made by the same people.

that's why you double check thier work. the roketa i got from paul has very good quality. though when i got it he let some stuff fall by the wayside. grease swingarm bolt and other pivoting points nad etc. wheelies like ther'e no tomorrow. fork oil should be changed when you get it. oil should be chnaged and etc.

does any of your paperwork give a horsepower rating? i would guesstimate it to be in the 7-12 horse range? what's the compression? if you can get a reading off of the engine cases i would like to know the manufacturer of the motor. (loncin, jailing, GPX, etc.) some of these chinese motors can be taken from mild to WILD with just a few hundred in off the shelf parts. Thanks for looking

I'll look tomorrow evening just for you! If you go to www.badazztoyz.com, they offer a cc upgrade to 140cc(I think), carb, oil cooler, and some other stuff. I'll probably just leave it alone for now, the bug will get me soon enough! lol

yes, it has an electric starter. I have kick started it, and it works well. The turn signals have a beeper while it's blinking(kind of annoying), but have never heard of that on a bike. I'm finally starting to get a little excited about it!

the bug doesn't have to bite to hard considering the highcompression piston and aluminum cylinder upgrade sells for 168 bucks

couple that with oil cooler and other bits and pieces and you're doing good. can't wait to get mine.

Thanks for noticing! I spend more time in my garage than in my house. The little garage door was not a good idea, at the time seemed like a good idea. When I married my man 3 years ago, his garage was unfinished(no sheetrock, ceiling, the back part you see was a greenhouse(there used to not be a door back there). Now it's exactly the way I want it, ready to work on just about anything I can! I used to keep my bikes in the little garage part and would close the door so bypassers wouldnt' see them, didn't last. Now the back part if filled with my husbands boxes of "stuff", he told me,I'll get to them and clear it out! that was months ago! I love him, but he's a procrastinator mucho
Actually, the mirrors a funny/ugly as they are, kind of grow on you(me anyway). They'll stay, unless something else comes about.
