I wanted to weigh in on the tao tao 50 I ordered one new, put it together. The brake a little shaky but all in all ran well for a week. I'm riding along as happy as I can be and it sounds like an immediate loss of compression and it died. I I got to the plug even tho they don't give you the right tools in the kit.
So I finally got it home and the plug was loose, basically came right out. It seems on a brand new unit as far as I can tell shot out and stripped the threads. The company was happy to send me a new plug. I am waiting for a response on if there going to send me a head assembly.......like I read in the above comments, sub par alloys, shitty tech. it probably wasn't tightened properly I should have checked but the video it comes with didn't mention it and it was a bitch to get to. Still I've never heard of anything like that happening and either havew anyone I know
