do the 25:1 ratio for about the first gallon then do the 50:1 ratio from then on. it helps to mix the break in gas/oil a whole gallon at once so you dont forger how much you've done.

OK VERY FIRST THING DucatiDude. DO NOT BUY FROM MINIPOCKETROCKETS.COM no matter what anyone in the world tells you! It is rated one of th worst sites ever on the Better Business Bureau. 90% of people who receive their GP-RSR, receive it broken, without parts, and almost ALWAYS disassembled.
This is a link to the Better Business Bureau's review on Minipocketrockets.com

The engine mix ratio doesnt rly matter, just keep it 50:1. the manual does say 25:1 for the first few tank fills which is okay but...just personal choice. when i ordered my first cag a few years bak from mini pocket rockets, it sucked. they are cheaply made bikes to begin with, and the distributor should quality check all bikes. MINI POCKET ROCKETS.COM DOES NOT QUALITY CHECK THEIR BIKES. before you even start the bike, a full check should be done on all nuts and bolts, tire pressures, test the brakes and make sure the throttle returns well. if anything seems out of place or misfunctioning, either have a mechanical person take a look at it, or complain to the distributor immedietly. these bikes are very fast and things go wrong very fast. ive had the chains fall off, brakes lock up, handlebars come loose, fuel line leak onto the hot exhaust...the bikes can be very fast and fun if all proper preventative maintainence is taken. I reccomend LOC-TITE on all screws and bolts without lockwashers on them, keep an eye on chain tension at all times (bend over and check it at a stop sign) Ive ridden my Cag for hundreds of miles and love it, but again their cheaply made so always do a quick go-thru before riding. they do a solid 35mph out of the box with no upgrades.

35mph out of the box? What did you gauge your speed with? GPS, speedometer, radar gun? I've never heard of a Cag that will do 35mph right out of the box without anything done to it except putting in the gas/oil.

R3nzhe, I'll pretend I didn't notice the casual reference to illegal street riding ....

Well, I guess I know what my next pb project is going to be ..... one of the GP RS-Rs I have just sitting in the garage, waiting for their turn to be worked on.

actually im guessing it depends where you are, ive called the local pd and talked to two different officers and a sergeant and told me that mine wasnt illegal to drive to my house to my friends for work, and told them i would not be on highways or sidewalks...

Interesting ..... Well, please keep that to the "What's The Law?" section of the forum. The laws where you are may be different, but in general, street-riding is illegal, not really a smart idea, and is not talked about on an open forum. Not getting on your case, just letting you know before the admins do ......

As for the chain being super-tight, NO. That will cause undue wear and tear on the clutch and the rear sprocket. The one I picked up was so tight that the chain had actually sawtoothed the sprocket and ruined it - the teeth were as sharp as razors. You should have about 1/2"-3/4" of flex in the chain, no more than 1".

Is everything lined up correctly? It sounds like either your engine or rear sprocket (or both) is out of line/bent. Spin the rear wheel, and see if the sprocket wobbles - if so, replace it.

I like using a metal ruler/straight edge to check alignment on my chain. What you do is lay the edge of the ruler against the pinion and the sprocket, and sight down the ruler from the rear wheel. Where the edge touches the pinion and the sprocket should be flat all the way across - if only the front or the rear of the ruler edge is touching, then you know that's out of line, and will throw the chain. Once you get the two lined up straight, you'll have a pretty good shot at keeping the chain on ... just be prepared to do some adjusting of both the engine and the rear wheel.

SpyGuy, i was wondering why then after getting my bike newly purchased the chained popped off twice, i placed it back on tighened it popped off again then took it to a tech, fix it and purchased a new sprocket and chain because it bent both and still manage to pop off for the fourth time.... before all this happened it began leaking gas in my friends garage,...what should i do to prevent the chain from popping off and not be so tight, also what should i upgrade first and second performance wise.. thanx in advance
