Re: Long trip planned-- advice welcome!
Sorry forgot to mention I will certainly be riding it around my hometown for at least 2 months before depending on it to get me that far =) So it is really the beyond-initial tuneup stage im worried about. Have been reading more and more about the reliability of 4-strokes, esp the 49cc honda imitation by HuaSheng.
Thanks for everyone's help with these topics. I'll be posting more questions as they come in. For now if anyone has anything to add, id be very grateful.
