Anyone out there have a remedy for a Lifan 200cc that doesn't upshift smoothly. It isn't very old but is raced in a grass kart.

Guys, never buy lifan! Its crap!
I have my lifan king 125cc (LF125-14F) for not even a year, and i have like +- 1200km's with it.
I already had troubles with throttle cable, carburator, valves, bolts coming loose, chain-guard breaking off, speedo-clock not functioning anymore,...
Lifan service sucks ballz! I buy my parts on the internet, some are really hard to find. I have enough of it.
For ur safety; dont buy lifan!! Save more money and spend it on a really good bike, not such crap!
Yes they look nice those bikes, but please, dont buy it!
Ur better off with a second hand known brand than a new lifan.
I spend more hours working on it than actually riding it.
I'll never be too quick to judge such things when something happens wrong. But it really became too much for me.
They are cheap to buy, but expensive to repair (not easy to find all parts, shipping costs, ur time wasting on repairs because no bike dealer wants to touch lifan bikes in the region)
Really, take my advice, dont do it.

I have a 2008 Ricardo 250 that I need a throttle cable and possibly carburetor. Does anyone know f a source for the parts? I haven't been able to ride it for 18 months because the throttle sticks wide open.

2008 gy200. Jets work loose inside carb and fall out into the bowl. Used lock tight this last time. Dont know if it will hold up to a constant bath of gasoline but had to try something. This will cause the full choke condition and hard start or no start problem.

Skygo motorcycles made in the Philippines use the Liflan 161FMJ motor and no problems, matter of fact Skygo out sells Honda here in the south as business motorcycles , they are selling so many Honda has brought back the 125 TMX at a price about the same as Skygo to try and keep up with sales

I would never buy a motorcycle from china. period!
than you better buy only American or British, most Motorcycles from Japan have motors built in China, Honda has used Liflan for over 17 years and only make one model in Japan ,Kawasaki Boxers 150 are built in India with motors made in China almost all motorcycle parts are being made there, i bet some Harley parts are made there also

I purchased a lf200 from Lifan Wholesale and love the bike. Registration is a problem. DMV says that they will not register the bike in the VIN starts with L. Give me a break. Their bitch is that it does not comply with FED EPA requirements and State safety requirements. There arguement is bogus. This is the exact same bike in every characteristic as those imported by American Lifan which is OK with DMV. What we need is a lawyer to straighten DMV out. Whether you VIN is a L or an A makes no difference to safety or the environment.
the problem might be you have a Lifan clone, their are companies in China making motors and calling them Lifan they will not pass DMV only the Lifan made in Chongqing Lifan group is the real deal and will meet standards
