What ratio of 2-stroke oil to gasoline are you running for break in ???
Where does the noise come from;
You are going to need a stethoscope , or a friend to identify the source of the noise.
This is dangerous.
Does the noise happen with the clutch pulled in?
Start the engine. Make sure it is making the noise.
Get a large screw driver and listen to the handle end while poking the NON ROTATING source of the noise with the point.
Does the noise happen with the clutch engaged?
Get a large screwdriver and a friend who will hold a running bicycle rear wheel up in the air .
Or get a stethoscope and a friend who will hold a running bicycle rear wheel up in the air .
Start your bike make sure it is making the noise.
Have your friend lift and HOLD the rear wheel of a running motorized bicycle with the clutch engaged.
Place the point of the screwdriver or the business end of the stethoscope on the NON rotating place that is making the noise.
Move the probe around to locate the source of the noise.
For example the bottom of the cylinder, the cylinder head, the side of the engine where the magneto is and so on .
Kill the engine.
Have your buddy let it down.
POST your findings.
Ask questions .
Do you have a warranty.
