5- do people use gears (from a mountain bike or something)?

Thanks! Im excited for this haha
1 yes you will probobly be able to go up hills with chinese kits with 44 t sprocket the kits come with.

2 depends, kits should go 30 more or less.

3you have to start the engine with pedals or if your engine has a pull rope its still nice to have your feet not dangling.

4.idk i havnt really tried

5 yes they sell shift kits but they cost money.

4 stroke you dont have to mix oil 2 stroke you do.
if your not gonna use kit then it all depends.
