Default Re: what do i do with my new hobby

Here is an idea. This happened to my friends bike too. I told him to check all of the engine hardware to see if anything was loose. Sure enough some of the bolts were loose. When he snugged everything up it ran perfect. I would check all of the bolts holding the engine together as well as the nuts on the head. Don't forget to check the screws on the carb (minus the idle screw) and also make sure the carb is mounted tight. I think a lot of kits come shipped with loose hardware so it is good to check everything. Oh and be careful not to over tighten, you could strip something.
