I have both the Jonway (Armor yy-250-T) and Roketa REFLEX clones and the Jonway is much better and smoother. The Roketa has lower grade tires, suspension, more electrical problems and noise than my CN250 Jonway,
I fixed the Armor high heating problem by changing how the top radiator fill hose was install... and the rest was not problems.
I really like the Armor Jonway yy-250-t ++++ on the CN250 clone over the Linhai clone, and the Jonway handles better.
Hello whome: You should know that, Jonway is an actual company and mfg/assembler of scooters, Roketa is not. Jonway manufactures scooters for a few Badge Brands, such as the Road-Runner i scooters sold by Evo sales, and I think now Lance since they are no longer are mfg. by ZNEN. Roketa is just a Badge Brand and their scooters are produced/assembled by various companies to certain specifications, the company that owns the name "Roketa" is a company called Goldenvale. It would seem that Jonway is starting to move in a more quality direction, lately their products seem to have been getting better. They are also the company that designs and produces a lot of the molds for the plastic body fenders. I haven't seen or read any reviews, but Jonway supposable has a 500cc, 2 cylinder scooter.

First can allow me comment that all 250cc scoots are not built the same... for my modification the radiator must be located behind the fuel tank... stupid idea I know.
Then the radiator must be constructed backwards... yes they put the top fitting in the front of the radiator not facing the engine... again stupid.
Then the took the filler hose and ran it down to the bottom of the frame and then to the top of the radiator... again stupid
Bottom, if you have the CN250 stupid cooling arrangement take off your center plastic and reroute you filler hose... you will need to think about it, but it can be done and it fixes the stupid Chinese arrangement.
The Armor Jonway CN250 is a nice machine, but it is cheap because they know they screwed-up the cooling and want to dump these.. But, I would trade my Roketa Linhai bucket of bolts for another Armor CN250 YY-250-T in an NY second.

well, i know all of the Jonway/JMstar built MC54's are setup like this with the radiator behind the fuel tank. I have never really looked at how my filler hose was routed, but i guess i'll check that out next time i'm pulling body panels off the scoot.
It sure would help if you could post some pics of what you did.
My 2007 Roketa Bali MC-13 250cc is under the Jonway tag and is stated/stamped on my serial plate. Roketa is a subdivision of Jonway. From what I have read and understand that there are only 3 factories in China that make all of the scooters regardless of brand. That's why all of the scooters look alike regardless of name. The warehouse in California that drop shipped my scooter had several other brands also besides Roketa. One difference I can see are the motors. Honda Helix and Yamaha Linhai. The other is the look, that being like my Roketa style and the Qlink style. One is like a Honda Reflex and the other a Honda Helix. But on the Chinese scooters you can have either the Honda clone engine or the Yamaha clone engine. The Yamaha is ready-made for after market "racing"/upgrade parts, the Honda isn't. These would be in the 150cc-250cc range. The 50cc scooters are a little different and I'm not real familiar with them. Also the Korean and Japanese scooters are going to be similar in looks and engines but superior in quality and fit and you pay for that. Definitely not Chinese since the Chinese copied/cloned them. The Chinese scooters are a bargain for the price but you need to be mechanically inclined to work on them or know someone who is.
