    Most Sinns bike are OEM from Qingqi / Pionner (WMI: LAE) which is powered by a Suzuki clone.
    U can't do much engine work on Euro 4 (after 2017) bike. They're ALL fuel injected. Once they're f***ed, u MUST visit stealer to fix it.
    Play it simple find a carburetor used bike in OK condition...

    No experience with Kymco myself, I have to say, you need to be wary of 2nd hand 125's, of any manufacturer, as, a large number are likely to have been 1st bikes, and, as such suffered from lack of maintainance, ad rough handling.

    I replied on your other post, so, not going to repeat what I wrote there. As with any bike, whatever you get, how reliable it remains, will depend on how well it's looked after, especially chain & oil, keep it clean, give it a coating of acf-50, especially over the gritting season, as this will help keep corrosion at bay.

    As I say, looking after it, and the bike will be fine. 15 years ago I was riding a Chituma CTM-125 400 miles a week just commuting to & from work, and it was fine, and the quality of chinese bikes is now a world away from what it was back then.
