    Beetle Juice here I have been riding my new bike today and maybe 3 miles it seems as though it needs more air or messing with the carb I dont really know When I am riding it seems as if it want to bog out and not take the gas I am using Amsoil 20 to 1 ratio and looked at the paper that come with it and gaped the plug 0.36. Give me some ideas on where to start..bld.

    Give it some time to break in, but for sure with Saber, even when breaking in, don't go under 30:1. That is plenty of oil.

    What needle clip setting are you using? Have you sealed you intake mani/carb union?

    20:1 will be oily, but OK. It's not the oil.
