    Hey as it is my first minibike that ive owned i just was wondering myself but also for the benifit of other ppl if we could make a list of things to do when you receive your new bike and things not to do. Maybe also things to do (or not) even after you have your bike (checking bike)

    You aren't supposed to run in the engine soft you are meant to run it in hard.

    You trust Joe Blows guide to running in a bike compared to a world wide belief that you should take it slow? If taking it slow fucked up a bike or made it not as powerful as it could be, no one would do it.

    i always run my bike in slow after a rebuild but thats usually because i dont spend the extra dollars getting the cylinder honed out. when i first got my 138cc lifan engine i thrashed the ass out of it as soon as the bike was out the crate, that was about 6months ago and still no problems all i have done is changed the oil and it still runs like a beast and has never missed a beat.

    Do you think ricky carmichael and james stewart ride their bikes easy and slow for the first couple of tanks after every race when they rebuild there bikes? No. Why do bike brands tell people to not over rev brand new engines? Good question its the same type of question as why is Marijuana illegal? Thats the million dollar question.

    Do Ricky Carmichael and James stewart ride Chinese bikes? They have quality bikes and quality parts.
