Time for opinions Motohoustonites...

OK Motohoustonites, weigh in on this:

I have an RS50 Aprilia chassis and a unique opportunity to build it with a much more potent engine than it comes with stock.

My choices are-
KX60 engine, breathed on a bit but nothing big.

XR150 engine, same deal, a little breathed on.

With the stock RS50 engine it'll do about 60mph with my fattass on it, and it was a helluva lot of fun!

The reason for the engine swaps is that a: the stocker is long gone, b: I have both of these engines and the components needed to put them in, and c: I love a good project and this one is right up my alley

So, what do yall think? 2 stroke mosquito fogger or thumpenstien 4 stroke?

I thought about that because I have a CR250 engine.... I think that would be a bit scary for that little frame... it's not a true GP frame like the RS125 frame I have so I was thinking of putting the CR250 in the RS125 frame.
