the idea of "clone" +Chinese =at least as hard to get parts for as the oldies if not harder, and most certianly a throw a way for thr simplest of issues.
Generally, the clones will use Honda parts just fine for most cases. I don't like seeing my $$$ go overseas, but unfortunately sometimes it is a matter of economics.
