Default New to 2 Strokes!

Hey guys, great forum you have here.

I'm a senior in high school and like to tinker; I found this place researching China girl kits. I ended up getting an Ebay kit for Christmas and slapped it on my Felt Q520 mountain bike:

So far it's been a lot of fun, I've had a bit of carb tuning issues due to it not being mounted level; my frame prevented mounting the carb correctly. I'm using the CNS pipe for now. It won't idle correctly, but I'm not messing with tuning until I burn through my 23:1 mixture for break-in.

As the title suggests, I'm new to 2 stroke motors but am mechanically inclined, so watching my modding should be interesting. I've affectionately named it the "Dark Knight".

Here's my other ride, a 2006 Subaru Forester. It's extensively modified; I dropped the automatic trans out of that and swapped it for a 5 speed from an earlier year Subaru WRX, and also pulled the engine to replace some components and fabricated an Eaton M62 roots supercharger system from a Mercedes C230K on it. There's a stealthy front mount intercooler on it that you can't see in the picture. Nothing like 3 pedals and blower whine! As you can imagine it's a little faster than my motorized bicycle.
