Default Attention new members!

Please be sure to give as much info about your bicycle and engine as possible when asking for help. The more we know about it, the better we can help.
"I have a new motor and it made a funny noise and quit" is NOT going to do much but make eyes roll...
DON'T be afraid to ask what seem like dumb questions if you don't know. We were ALL noobs at one point...
DO tell us everything you can about your bike and the problem you are having.
DO search the classic and sticky threads. Almost EVERY possible issue is in there somewhere...
DO try to write clearly and rationally. Pretend your english teacher is reading your posts. SPELL CHECK!
DON'T take everything you see or hear as gospel truth. Get several opinions and choose the one that seems best for your issue.
DON'T get offended if someone posts something different than you. Opinions vary.
DO remember to have fun! These little toys can be a source of endless joy and satisfaction if you approach it with the right frame of mind. They can also drive grown men to throw things through the garage wall in frustration.
I always step back and take a break when things start getting irritating. Coming back at a problem after a nice break gives me fresh ideas.

The resources here from all these incredibly talented people can help you get the most out of your motorized bicycle!
Just dive in and keep smiling!
*hides pile of broken engine parts and tries to look innocent*
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
