Default Hello from Nebraska

Just finished my bike a couple of day ago. Bought a 3 speed cruiser and put a motor on it. It takes me around Lincoln so far without any problems. And I am a hefty fellow. 300lbs and the fastest I have been is 24 mph.

I do have a question. I have been running about 36 to 1 ratio and I see the owners manual calls for 20:1 I am using an oil called ???927 racing stuff?

Welcome to the forum. If you break in the engine according to the instructions, limiting speed for the first few tanks of fuel, it will get even stronger. I agree that the premix ratios in the instructions are too high. I broke mine in at 24:1 and later used 32:1.
