Default Re: 1st build and a couple of questions

Now, as far as these smaller engines are you have a 2 or 4 stroke engine?
2 strokes have much less low end torque than a 4 stroke, when they get to revving though thats when they come alive. I just built my first motorized bicycle a 50cc 2 stroker and i notice how the directions say to pedal the bike when starting from a start or accelerating from a slower speed- not that you can't start w/o pedaling but w/ a 2 stroke you are gonna get nowhere fast and might damage the motor (that I really don't know, just seems likely if its done too much)
