Hello Everyone,

Just Finished my first build a few days ago, a thick (cheap ripoff gt) cruiser Frame with a 48cc gru-bee starfire roundhead.
So far far no problems, Running 18:1 mix, (just standard 2-cycle not synthetic) the manual said 20:1 but i added a little extra oil for break in

only trouble I had with the build was my Bike had the odd 68 spoke wheels so i had to get another back wheel with 72 spokes.

one odd thing i noticed was the thick gasket that came on the exahust pipe is quite a bit smaller thant he pipe and port,,,would cause some restriction, should i cut it out , or wait until after break in?

Thanks, this site has been a great help :)

Sam
