Default Re: bought a replacement engine and it wont start.

ok guys.... i have some great news !!!!!!! MY BIKE STARTED!!!! and i used it for a good 10 minutes.

now for some more noobie questions

1) i think i read somewhere that you shouldn't go passed half throttle for a while? is that because the bike cant go faster? it didn't feel like i could get to the same speed as i did on my other bike.

2) im having the same problem as i did on my old bike, or maybe im not idling properly.... i do this: riding the bike at 20km/h then squeeze the clutch expecting the motor to keep running but not have a hold of tire ( idle position ). instead the bike just revs really loud and i end up hitting the kill switch.
