Re: Brand new to gas bikes.
Welcome! No SMH; these kits are cheap, but like bread is cheap. It's what you do with it that counts. You may ruin an engine of two, but only through ignorance of how they operate. Be patient with your China Girl...treat her with respect. She'll give you literally THOUSANDS of happy miles if you know what to expect of her, and if you listen to her...smell her...and feel her needs. (that sounded creepy, but it's true). If you like throwing back a few pints, ALWAYS remind yourself that your China Girl is a delicate flower, and although she'll try to do whatever you demand of her, she's not a high-performance engine; don't abuse her.
