I have a chance to get a lifan 100 for a deal. I have heard a lot of smack about motors that aren't honda...or RC 86 strokers :p Is this a waste of money, or will it perform a lot better than my stock 50 motor? Are they reliable. A friend said they were 5 or 6 horse. Thats a lot better than 2.5 horse stock. I'm looking for a little feedback, but i need it soon.

Power wise it will be much better than a stock xr50, but the main thing is the reliability comes into question. I know I have read where Vince said the tranny's arnt quite as tuff and not as good for offroad abuse, also they are alittle low on power for a 100cc motor. But it would be a pretty good motor, it all realy depends on what kind of deal your gettting on it.

depends on how much your getting it for, if its anywhere near the price of the rc86 motor, go with that cuz you also get a manual clutch and 4 speed plus you can race in the 88 class
