So, I am new the the forum and wanted to say hello. I have a 150cc Hammerhead that is about to become a project buggy. Long story short, my brother-in-law had this from new and didn't do any maintenance on it. When I got it, discovered that the drain bolt for the transmission was stripped and it had no fluid in it at all. I re-tapped the the plug hole and filled it up, but it wasn't long before the gears stopped working.

Took it into a local shop and they told me that it would need a new engine for around $2000 - so I am going to get it back from them tomorrow and start a new project. Really looking forward to getting started on this new project - any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I am probably going to start with the gears on the old engine before replacing, but I am open to suggestions with those here that have way more experience.

Do I just get a new engine? I know they aren't $2k...

AND what upgrades / mods should I do or at least consider?

Glad I found this group, looking forward to hearing from you all.

If you have the Hammerhead 150 with internal reverse, I sell the full engine for $800 but I'm out now. Sure you can find one for the same price or around the same price.

As for the upgrade, there's a lots of them. CVT are usually easy to do. You can find performance exhaust and all other kind of performance parts. This is a common engine.
