There is no mixture screw that Is the idle screw... run it in all the way then back out four and a half turns as a starting point.

All the chrome clutch levers are junk in my opinion. I use a brake lever and have never had a problem.

All the tensioners are dangerous. I have had two different ones. Now I have the rear wheel adjusted for the engine chain and the tensioner on the less used bike pedal chain. I haven't had a problem since.

I don't think too many of the kit suppliers are actually bike builders so they pretty much can't help even if they wanted to.

All the kit chains stretch they will stop after about a hundred miles on the bike.

Can't help you with the frame mine doesn't have any suspension at all. One of my many mistakes.
