what kind of bike, and if it's a chinese bike, yes it is normal. they come poorly assembled, and there is no factory tune... so it's basicly like having a heap of parts, and having to make sense/better it all to make it function smooth as a whole.

best thing you could do is take it apart, give it a good polish, take the sharp edges out of the cylinder, polish the piston, crank, lube up all the bearings, loctite all the Hex Bolts, JB weld the Petcock and install a fuel shutoff valve, cut 1/8" off the tip of the reed plates and rework the arch, cut half the fins off your flywheel and polish it, regap the coil to .020"(about the width of two normal buisness cards), regap the spark plug to .030", Measure the squish and adjust it, use yamabond as your head gasket.

^^^^^
there are tutorials to do all of this available in
air cooled pocket bike section, check out the
how to's aswell.

Your better off taking the time to make the bike reliable, instead of ruining what you have and having to replace a bunch of parts. Plus, this will let you get comfortable with the engines, and facilitate any replacements/performance upgrades you might do in the future.

I never really dug the Blades..they look to me like X1's with reeded engines and offer more to go wrong or contribute to poor handling and a possibly dangerous ride before relinquishing mega loot onto it to make it all conform and perform................On the ntiny bikes a rigid frame/suspension helps out alot......

Leaking gas is a sign of a stuck or improperly set float..................

Like MQ said go over the whole bike as a whole,,,lube the cables and loctite all the bolts by removing them one at a time adding loctite and reinstalling the hardware properly torqued.......If not your bike will literally be raining nuts and bolts before things start shedding off the bike....They sell better quality hardware at some autoparts stores.....I use the 519pc grade 8/8.8 metric Dorman master hardware kit from PepBoys...Good Luck

Good question... the description of the bike on their website is pretty vague... no engine type, no carb description... idk if I would buy a bike from these guys to be honest... atleast you got it in one piece. Sift through the forums, you will find most if not all the awnsers to your problems.
