$90 for 20% increase in displacement? Made for CG125 clones.
Great news your bike has arrived. Was it damaged in transit ? All the ones that came south had various fork lift tines through the boxes.

The battery does not need charging. Just tip the acid into the battery. Prick a small hole in the top of the plastic container to make the acid flow a lot faster. Pull the brake pads out and give them a sand and clean up. Else you will not have any brakes. Seriously.

Looks to be 54 x 54 bore/stroke

Plus it may be a good deal @ ~$300 usd shipping included (in the US).

Good Luck.
CG engines are upright and pit bikes are laid forward..

I reckon you maybe right. I would not be surprised if there many different details between the clones. Might try asking on the Skyteam Ace face book page.

The update from me.

I rode the ACE to work and back today. WOW what a difference between a stocker and my one. I am still using stock gearing. Easily cruises on the 80- 90 kph (50- 55 mph). Others say the top speed is 110- 120 kph ( 70- 75 mph) with the mods I have. Not sure I want go that fast on some thing so tiny. Flys up long hills. Still dies on really steep hills.

Every bike rider at lights, wants to know some thing about the bike.
