Using zip ties at spoke intersections is an attempt to make the wheel a bit firmer. It may, or may not be effective.
I have seen it done a lot on offroad dirtbikes, though I have never done it myself.

If you feel your motor is running very hot it could be running lean, from too small a jet size.

Good luck
My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
