We really oughta make a sticky someday to warn everyone about cheap china garbage parts!!! That factor is the single biggest problem we have to identify here, before any one of us members can help someone fix their own Honda ATV. We waste more of our time discovering, advising, and waiting on folks to correct prior china knockoff carb kit and electronic module replacement mistakes, than anything else we ever need to do for them. I think a fair warning notice should be included in a Welcome email, don't you...?
I personally think everyone know's already CHEAP anything tends to mean BAD
humans are just cheap nature d more often than not, and they cannot resist cheap prices that lure them into buying them!
they like to gamble so to speak thinking THEY WILL WIN!
and out smart a OEM maker!
and even worse SOME folks do win, making the lure even more enticing!
folks need to remember CHEAP is more times than NOT JUNK
far too many folks look at UP front costs, and not long term costs
a OEM part will last MOST folks 10-20 yrs
an example this atv is what 12 yrs old
if an OEM "X" 100 bucks that's less than 10 bucks a yr, sounds better if you look at things this way
but few do
they see that CHEAP price tag and just say GREAT and buy it, fingers crossed gambling it WILL work!
not that OEM parts are NOT over priced, most are
but again, long term viewing helps swallow the costs IMO, not to mention you KNOW Its the right part and will LAST yrs and yrs?
buy once cry once? or at least not cry again for yrs LOL
