Default Re: Intro plus questions

**** I like 2 stroke because they are cheaper, simple, easy to work on, and I like the in frame like on a mountain bike, kind of like a dirt bike.

**** The 2 stroke does not come with a centrifigul clutch. The clutch that comes with it works to either engage or disengage the engine. The action of the clutch is pretty smooth and works just like one in a car.

**** I would recomend going to sick bike parts ( on the left side of the screen) and buy some aftermarket parts. The parts I think are critical to get to replace the stock parts are: plug wire, engine hardware kit, gas cap gasket, intake manifold o ring, fuel filter, and clutch cover ( this really quiets down the clutch noise).

**** Your stock caliper/v brakes will be plenty. Since you have a clutch lever on the left side of the handle bars you loose a spot for that left brake lever. Sick bike parts also sells a dual pull brake lever that you can put on the right side of the bars and will pull both of your brakes.

Welcome to the hobby, its a blast!
