I don't know for sure....but I think 2000rpm idle would be a bit high for this bike. 1000 - 1200 I would have thought. Remember...this bike won't develop a lot of power low down.....so (in true 2-stroke style) you've gotta rev it to get it to shift..... :wink:

Called flooding. Cylinder is cold, If too much fuel air mix enters it condenses and wets the plug inhibiting the spark, so no bang and engine stops.


Setting off on a small 2stroke is a bit of an art. Increase revs, let clutch bite, but not fully in, slip clutch keeping revs up with throttle. Let clutch in when moving. Practice makes perfect. Hope you don't live in a smokeless zone 8-)
