I recently installed a 80cc engine on my bike and I’ve rode it for probably and hour or so. When I was done I rolled it into the garage and forgot to close the petcock. I realized about three hours later and I rushed outside. There were a couple of drops of fuel on the ground. I closed it but now I’m worried. What should I expect when I try to start it, or should I?

Welcome to the forum, chances are you won't have a problem. What I do is cut the fuel off as I'm coasting to a stop, then let it run for a few seconds. This has always worked for me. Then when I go to start again I turn on the fuel and hold down the tickler valve on the carb about five seconds to fill the bowl.
