The machines known in the US such as SDG, Thumpstar, and Pitster Pro are actually pretty decent bikes now. I have ridden an SDG and loved the motor feel and the way it rode. I have seen pictures of the thumpstar on mx.com being riden pretty hard and jumped and it seemed very good. Usually anything being designed at least in america will be good. If it comes straight from someone that has stretched eyes its gonna be horrible.

Yes I have a friend of mine had a SDG 106 or 107cc whatever they are your right the motor rips but the trannies are weak always shifting into false nuetrals inbetween gears and this is common problem with SDG's as I've seen numerous SDG owners post on the pitbike websites about the problems they expirenced with their bike and alot of the problems were the same thing from different people.
Bottom line is there not on the same level of quality and reliability as the Hondas!
Yeah of course they won't be. But they are more affordable than a fully tricked out $10,000 honda with all its parts. The SDG problem can be fixed by polishing the gears and replacing some internal parts because they come with a weak pin and it snaps and causes the gears to grind eachother down. Pretty much a domino effect. I bet as they build them they will become more and more reliable. I was surprised at how good the SDG was considering all the trash I heard about them. Don't beleive what you hear until you prove it...(not to you beckwizzle, but just as a lesson)
