I haven't seen a report on these $150 or less babies, good, bad?



I've heard some say they are built better than the Kitaco?



With the rumored TB billet auto clutch housing, might be cool to run one on a stroker auto clutch.

I have one in a 88 honda ported stock head. I bought mine on ebay for 130 so far it has been no problems and compared to my kitaco unit I used to have it is better than the kitaco so far becuase the kitaco unit even with loctite the poles that the pick up are attached to would vibrate loose constantly. In my opinion the kitaco unit was poor quality unlike their other products and these china ones are the same quality and design but they are not ripping you 300 for a poor qualtiy simple little item. I am just saying in terms of look materials used they both performed fine for me. If you want high quality go takegawa or tokyo mods stage 3.

We have sold a few dozen of them and no real issues to report as of yet, except one bad CDI out of 30+ units sold.


But people have had that happen with the kitaco so to me I would rather spend 100 bucks instead of 300. Plus unless you are buying off ebay you will get better customer service and faster solutions to your problems from the import dealers on here than say at a large retailer etc.

i bought one on ebay from brandxminis. found a bid ending on sunday night of the memorial day weekend, and got it for US$67.00 + US$11.00. i received it last week.



i tried taking the stator plate screws out of the stock engine(Loncin 107 three valve) and both phillips heads stripped out. so im waiting until monday for honda to get two of those bolts sent to them. and then i can start it, just need to trade the alum slinger that came with it for a new ignition cover from a local pm member.



i will tell you of how it revs up when its installed on monday, and then how it rides when i get the ignition cover cut.

They're so cheap now, I'm going to trim and redrill the backing plate to fit an XR80/120 I did. The rotor taper's the same. I already trimmed a pound and a half from the crank and lightened the flywheel. Should rap even better soon.

Uh oh, just found out the crank seal on mine is leaking. I noticed some oil around the peg area a couple of weeks ago but figured maybe a bit too much chain lube. I took the cover off today to put a new one on and found the leak. Anyone know where I can get a seal to replace this one? Would it be the same as a stock one?(doubt it)

Oh yeah, this one might have 5-6hrs on it tops.

I should have some extra seals, I can drop one in the mail for you if you PM me your addy. Grease it up with some assembly lube when you put it all together this time and you should be good to go.
