    Yamoto 200cc chinese bike from day-one

    Ebay is a great place for good prices ;-).. Search for 200cc and you will come up with alot of results. The price range on these are 500-1200$ on ebay.. but they are all pretty much the same bike just diff names on them

    so the screen itself is the oil filter? or do I need to order a oil filter from the seller?

    more depth detail of how i recieved my bike.. It was really well packaged. The Shifter / Front headlight+ plastic / kick stand / front tire / speedodometer devide needed to be added to front wheel had to be installed I havent added the gas tank panel yet because It seems to be a pretty tight fit ( and I was in a rush to see what it would do ) I thought the bike was going to be silent; but when u pull the throttle back it was alot louder then I expected, still not as loud as a dirtbike but it will rumble Also in the packaging i recieved the battery.. and a container of clear fluid.. Since my bike had Oil and brake fluid in it.. I came to the conclusion that the clear fluid stuff goes inside the battery.. I have no charger so I will wait till tommorrow to finish the other assembly ( but it is already able to run) The kicker itself seems to be really hard to kick off; as if you dont get a full kick because it has about 8 inches of play in it. I also went to the store and got some Valvoline 10w40 and some DOT3 brake fluid but am going to wait until first oil change to worry about that..( which I will do as soon as I figure out what kind of oil filter to use.) I am no mechanic and never had put anything together that had a motor and It wasn't too dificult to assemble ( took me about 4 hours to get it run ready.. most of the time was spent assembling the front tire ) Help needed: Ok so now the only problem I ran into is.. Idleing.. When i push the bike off it doesnt seem to idle.. but maybe thats because it has no battery? I did notice that the headlights/horn/brake lights will work if the bike is running even tho the battery is not charged, this is amazing So to any of you mechanics out there.. 1.) How will i fix the idle problem? 2.) Which oil filter can I use for it?

    Just recieved my bike today a GY200.. was in a metal cage.. Great bike! I encountered.. 1.) Didn't have a battery charger so I had to kickstart the bike to run and was a bit hard to keep running(when I let off the gas it didn't idle for more then 10secs... maybe a carb problem? Im no mechanic lol.. 2.) I found that actually holding the clutch and push starting it off without a battery is the best way to do it; Got it in 2nd gear and pushed down a hill and Vroom i was riding off =) 3.) Speed odometer is unaccurate ( maybe self inflicted ) 4.) I requested my MSO and Bill of sale today; and I am almost sure that Geico will insure me.. Overall from 6 hours of riding I found that.. THIS IS HANDS DOWN THE BEST 500$ I EVER SPENT.. I will update more on this.. I really wanna figure out what oil filter to use and how to fix the idle problem.. Any advice here?
