Take this one for what it is worth.

The clutch lever in my kit was trash from the first. I never could make it work worth a darn, so I replaced it with a brake lever I had laying about. Here is the trick. I cut a piece of old inner tube to lock the handle up so I could roll the bike in and out. I leave it on the grip so I can use it to hold the clutch in if I need to adjust the bike.

I also hated the throttle that came with the bike. I replace it with a shifter from a mountain bike. I can lock the throttle in any position while I work on things. I don't think either of those is earth shattering, but they seem to work better for me. Probably won't help anyone else.

So leave me your tip I can use all the help I can get...
I Liked those.. My 4stroke has been flooding at times when I turn it off.bad float seat maybe, and I could've just could've had a slice of inner tube so I could Pull the rope with the throdle wide open to get her started..
Hmm? Lets see what I can share?? OK Here Goes.. lets say Ya needed to tap a thread Into the thin steel that many china bicycles are made of.. But if you take a drive punch and dent it in a great deal then drill with your letter bit made for what ever size thread you are using, the metal once tapped, and while screwing the bolt in,, will pull back up titening as it draws back,and will be a secure fastener... Jeeesh this isn't so earth shaking either But it may help someone along the line
