It does take a bit of break-in to get it to the highest gear, but your 3-speed may be set so that it's shifting straight into 2nd or shifting really early - watch the 3-gear adjustment video and...

Fantastic news Dave! :) Enjoy it :)

You can try putting in fiberglass baffling material that's used in motorcycle exhausts, but I don't know if that will work or not. AFAIK there's no inner screen...

Assuming you've mixed it at 25:1 you should be fine, I guess think of it like a lawnmower or strimmer you use once a week but don't use all the fuel up with. I don't know about pump petrol but the...

If your engine is cutting out when you're trying to go more than 1/4 or 1/2 throttle, you need to break in the engine more. It's still breaking in even after 20+ tanks, so don't expect to be able to...
