Re: New to this....please help!!!!!!
Dan, let me welcome you to the forum. You've found the right place to get help and advice on your first motorized bicycle adventure. Most bikes can be pedaled but you need to expect some parasitic drag from the engine and clutch components as well as the added weight of the engine and accessories. Some are easier to pedal than others.
Unfortuantely I'm personally not a good source of 4 stroke bike information and not familiar with the bike or engine you're getting. But, we have many here who are and they'll be chiming in here to answer your questions and offer more input. Be patient.
Have fun and ride safe.
