    Re: lifan engine info

    i would highly suggest getting an already big bore engine for about the same price. WAY better longevity and reliability. i dished out $400 for a gpx 140 and it was the worst investment i had made on these pit bikes to date.



    on the other token, i just purchased a 05 crf 50 engine with a takagawa 88 kit already on it for $240 shipped.



    and heres one that went for dirt cheap. a deal like this is the best

    Re: lifan engine info

    I tried a Lifan engine I got in a trade. It seemed fine but you don't want to build to much power into it or thrash it to hard. The cases seemed a little thin. If you just want a rider it should be fine plus you can but new ones for around $300.

    Re: lifan engine info

    I have a lifan in my crf 50, its great, I just got a 146 kit and perf. camshaft from terry(firepower) and Im just waiting to drop it in my frame thats coming. it ripped before, and this is the 2nd year Iv had it, no problems at all. Im just changing the top end because cruising around at 75KPH(46MPH) was only fun for so long. you can change out alot of parts on them for performance and is a great engine with no shift problems yet *knock on wood* lol

    Re: lifan engine info

    IMO the 125cc's are the best.

    I bought a 140 from T-Bolt usa. I beat the hell out of it. It shifts GREAT and has tons of power! The new china motors have come a LONG way. You cant beat the price. $330.00 for a complete setup with carb and Ignition. Killer deal IMO.

    Re: lifan engine info

    Thanks for the info! Seems like everybody likes the 125cc and 140cc engines, but what about the 90cc engine that they make? Thats the one i was thinkin about getting.

    Re: lifan engine info

    All the 90's are great. The 4-up shift pattern is easiest to use. ebay sellers likely have less chance of helping you out if there is an issue or tuning problem, though
