    Just wondering if it is normal for an engine kit to be slow during the run in period. It has a slow take off speed, and it's just pretty slow all together. Maybe 30km top speed on a dead flat road. This is my second engine kit, both claim to be 80cc and ive used the same bike for both but i dont remember the last one being this slow. I must say this new one has only had up to 30 minutes of ride time.

    Sometimes you get lemons. Not much you can do about it

    some take quite a while to run in - luck of the draw when factories run cutting & stamping tools till they fail before replacing with new
