I've had a few, I usually would get them because they "stopped working" and were basically given to me. One I got as payment for helping a guy clean a carburetor on his derbi...

They CAN be somewhat reliable. Main issues are the same issues you see with like the clone carbs and stuff. - cheap materials, and mismatched materials so bolts tend to corrode and ge3t stuck and then easily strip or snap. poor tolerance s and QC meant that seals would pop out because the holes were machined well or shit would leak, covers would warp because not properly heat treated. also castings were fast, which akes stuff cheaper but weaker. drop it on the side and it's now got a giant crack (yeah, I did that) where a decent casting would just have a dent maybe.

Theyre just cheaper. and it's a big part just a gamble - one way they make it cheaper is low QC, if you throw out the 1 outta 20 that isn't actually gonna work for the next 2000 miles, your overall cost for each just raised 5%. So you can get a lazer 5 or a lifan or whatever and 19/20 are ok, but you're gambling that it's not gonna have some misaligned oil hole and fail to lube the camshaft.

Also price and quality went hand in hand - get a $350 lifan engine and it's wayyy better than the $250 ones. Mostly it seems they were almost intended to be disposable though. like one breaks, replace the whole thing it's only 300 bucks anyway...
