    I dont know why but my Chinese 2 stroke motor as been overheating.I dont know why? After about 15 minuts of running, i feel the motor and its very hot. This cant be normal because when it s overheated the motor dies after i turn it on. Can anyone help?

    Welcome to MBc! I have two questions, first, are you letting it run stationary for 15 minutes, or are you riding? Second, is there any major structure or assembly that could be reducing the airflow to the cylinder?
    But truthfully, this would be a good question to ask on the 2-stroke part of the board.
