    I am just beginning to ride my motored bike. Seems it is getting hot---smells hot. Is this normal? I'm loving it but I'm afraid she'll BLOW!.Should i change gas mix ...additive...etc?

    how hot? What is the cylinder head temp? If she's above 300 deg F CHT, then consider richening te mixture by lowering the needle clip once notch on the high end needle.

    As for changing the gas/oil mixture, can't recommend anything becuase you didn't tell us what ratio you were running.
