Default Re: Questions for experienced cyclists

Keep the weight of the bike down

and don't run wide open throttle all the time-

I think some peddling assist may help the motors life- especially if you are heavy

I prefer a 36 or 41 sprocket,
so the revs aren't so high cruising, and narrow wheels and or tires that help the roll

A china girl isn't the same as a scooter motor- it's two cycle so the oil mixes in to the fuel instead of having to be changed-

I haven't had much trouble in two years- none with the motor- mostly tinkering with the other stuff, and mostly just to get it like I want it- but I haven't done a great many miles-

for short trips- it's a convenient gas saver
