|I just bought my first bike, stated in the title. Its a 175cc 2 stroke, oil injected eduro bike. The lights and guages are gone, but it runs like a champ. It was 35-40 degrees out when I bought it and I turned the kill switch on, fuel on, choke on, took the kickstand up, at she started for me first kick. But even tho it runs good it still needs alot of work to become street worthy again (not to mention street LEGAL.) The drum brakes, chain, sprockets, lights, and guages need replaced. I checked the fuel and oil lines, tires, and air filter, those all seem ok. I need to change the crank case oil Im sure. Is there anything else i should check before using it a few hours a week to ride around the open field? and is there any free downloadable info on this bike, like a manual or parts explosion? I checked the sites that are stickied in this section, to no avail. The info im looking for is oil type and ammount, what certain parts are called, and other basic info Im sure to need at some point. I have no idea how hard it will be to change the brakes, or what parts need replaced in them. I have never messed with drum brakes. Thanks in advance.
P.S. Im new to bikes in general, as well as old engines. Only 2 years expirience on anything remotely close, which were my Yamaha Blasters, years 2000 and 1996. 200cc 2 stroke 4wheelers.
If you cant buy it, build it.
