Smile Pre Ride Maintenance ???'s

I am interested in what i should do before i ride a new motor.

Where to grease, what to grease with.

Bike and motor. Before i start it once i want all the kinks out that way it isnt a problem.

Also I need help on how to decide what tooth sproket i need. I weigh 300lbs and am running a 2 stroke.

I am assuming that you are using a Chinese HT in frame kit.
What kit are you using?
Explore this site, you never know what you'll find.

As for a sprocket suggestion, that depends on the terrain around where you ride and what you expect out of the bike.
Will you be encountering any hills?
What top speed do you expect?
(Note: gearing for faster top speed = less hill climbing ability unless you run a shift kit)
