What do you want the engine to do? Are you looking for more power, or just simply be reliable?

The best Chinese engine IMO is the Lifan, but getting a 49cc version may be a little harder as everyone sems to want larger displacement models.Truly, most replacement 49cc engines will pale in comparison to the original Honda. Most all the Chinese engines available will have heavier components and overall weight, and will be slower and less reliable. A used crf engine with a top-end rebuild will cost about the same or just a little more than the Chinese options out there. If you are wanting more power, the Lifan 125 is widely available for a reasonable price.

Thank you for your reply an information.Sounds like finding a oem Honda motor is the best option.
