    Well, since I ride a loncin I feel like I have to step in and say something, yes lifan is the better of the two engines, but at least my 110cc loncin has proven to be bulletproof, I got it brand new, used maybe 20mins to break it in before really letting it rip, it have suffered huge crashes, I have used the bike every weekend the last year, even been ridden in knee-deep snow, it always fires up on the first couple of kicks, it has enough power to be entertaining (still want more though), The only thing i've had to replace on the engine is the clutch, but thats because I abuse the clutch alot, and i've installed an high-comp piston just for fun, 24moto.com have all the parts needed to rebuild the engine if needed. If you replace the oil every few rides, and letting it warm up before abusing it, any engine will give you long life.

    Is anyone sure if it is a Loncin over Lifan?

    well how many of you guys have actually had a loncin, yup thats right not many. those that are saying there crap are probably talking about problems other people have had which was probably caused by them not knowing jack sh@# about motors. i had a loncin 125 and it was the most reliable china motor i have had, it out performed the lifan and ran alot better, cooler and quieter. also doesn't burn oil. what i am trying to say is don't dis something until you have tried it, i know some may have but others haven't.

    it prob would be better going the lifan as more people have them so they can help ya out with future problems.
    cheers

    This was an old thread which I started up again to question wich engine is in the photo. Either a Loncin or A Lifan. It doesn't matter which is better, I just need to know what engine is pictured in my previous reply so I know for a description so I can sell it.

    its a loncin, you can tell by the id code and the cover on the clutch side, plus it doesn't have the big valve head which proves th point that its a loncin. its the same motor that i had in my pitbike, they also look more like the honda's which is another fact of the loncin.

    I've had a electric start loncin in my bike but replaced it with my lifan engine. I haven't had many hours on it..maybe 2-3? needed new rings because oil was splattering all over my exhaust. Side cover bolts snapped when i tried to put the top end together. But with china engines, you either get a good or bad batch. You never know
    -Lightened oil sling
    -inner rotor
    -split fire ignition coil
    -Carbon fibre ignition cover
    -28mm OKO carby
    -Magnetic oil drain bolt
    -60.5mm stroker crank
    -Cases machined up to accept crank
    -NACHI crank bearings
    -56mm high compression piston
    -worked head (valve guide grinded flush,valve seats recut, port re-welded and reshaped, combustion chamber and exhaust port polished,valves de-shrouded)
    -28/24 oversized valves
    -heavy duty valve springs
    -tb300 Race cam + honda cam sprocket

    Just another comment about engines, If one person tells you a brand is **** because his engine collapsed, don't just take his word for it. just because a fifteen-year old with the mechanical skill of a retarded monkey managed to destroy an engine, it doesen't mean all of that brand is crap, if something fails its usually lack of maintenance from the person that rides the bike thats to blame. if you maintain your engine and can use basic tool without injuring yourself, your engine will be faithfull til the end.

    But of course, once in a while engines will fail because of faulty production, **** happens...

    Is this a Lifan or a Loncin?
    That bike looks a lot like one the early DHZ 120's . I have one of those same engines (still new) and my brother has one too . He (surprisingly) hasn't had a problem with it in over 2 years of riding with no maintenance done on his engine ...... LOL ....

    I was lead to believe that they were Lifan engines but inside the cam end plate is cast LC05Q4 indicating that they're Loncin's . Lifans have LF .
