Hey everyone, I have just joined the forums as I am looking to purchase a bike motor kit from eBay.

I have been doing a little bit of research, but I have been getting many mixed answers from eBay and Google hits. There just isn't much information on them.

So-far, I have been looking at Skyhawk 49 & 80cc motors from Mr Biker Boy, eBay Australia. The 80cc kit is $300 and the kit is labelled as "GT5 GEN 4(badboy) 80cc"
The add lists a bunch of outstanding features like:
"EXTRA HEAVY DUTY NEADLE BEARING ON PISTON PIN FOR LESS FRICTION AND LONGER LASTING."
"202 heavy duty Japanese crank bearing wich is longer lasting."
"Ball bearing chain idler for smoother rides."
"IMPROVED GASKETS ALL AROUND THE MOTOR FOR LONGER LASTINGS"
"2.5 LITRES PETROL TANK FOR LONGER DISTANCE NOT LIKE OTHER SELLERS HAS 2 LITRE TANK ONLY."
"Throttle with kill switch so you can easily stop the engine."
"Push button clutch handle for easier clutch operation."
"415 heavy duty chain for longer chain lasting."
The engalesh has been left intact.

The pictures look legit. And the note of a Japanese bearing really got me interested. OH and the seller has a 100% feedback. What do you think?

Now it also states that other competitors are using pictures of the motors from the yuandong engine factory(SKYHAWK FACTORY) to promote their inferior motors. Along with this a bunch of broken pictures and a video of the factory itself.

So my list of questions starts here:
What are your experiences with your brand of motor and distributor?
What about the Skyhawk brand? (or Grubee inc. in America, which states "Directly from China")
Is it still going and how long did it last?
Where was it made?
Where is the Skyhawk factory located?
Is there a fake one/no-name one producing motors?
& Do 202 bearings go into motors? (I think 202 is similar to a 308 bearing, the ones in skateboards, which I wouldn't think such a bearing would go in a motor)

<.<;;
I know it's a lot of questions but any help would be good as I am studying at the moment so I need to be careful about what I spend.

Thanking anyone who even read it half the way through, Blaze.
