hey bud,

What sort of bike will the motor be going in to?

What do you mainly want to do with the bike and what power you looking at?

Stock they seem to last forever. My stepsons 160 went well for a long time, and im now using that bottom end in my bike and its held up well to the tb head and piston. They do need the clutch basket replacing, as they eat the rubbers out, but thats probably the only weakpoint that springs to mind on the stock 160hos.

That sounds like the way to go then, would it be good in my 10'er or too much?

Will be a wheelstand monster, the bike inbuilt for callum was quite short wheel base and that sent the front wheel into the sky in any gear at a flick of the throttle.
