    OK, I finally got my bike 99% complete (all except tying down all the cables. I'm out of zip ties) I got the chain unjammed, and actually got it started (after great difficulty. I wish the choke lever wasn't labeled in Chinese). But one more problem has popped up. That little plastic peg that holds the throttle in place has sheared clean off, so now even if I do get it started again, I won't be able to actually give it any gas. Any suggestions for a quick, super inexpensive way to fix it?

    Yes, in fact when I buy a kit I drill that plastic nub right out, then carefully drill a countersink so that I can put a 10-24 ¾"long bolt with nut in its place, I put the bolt in and tighten the nut until it is recessed, this gives you a steel nub in place of plastic IMG_20160331_165249.jpg
