    A 33cc little motor, in the operators manual it says i must not take the choke completely off for 20hrs until it breaks in...have any of you heard such fiddle faddle before?This is my 1st!

    I've never heard of that . It's is common that some owners manuals are written by people that have not used the equipment . Would this be a 33cc Poulan engine ?

    If you go by that manual buy a couple cases of spark plugs......

    I picked it up so i could keep up with the dogs on walks,i cannot see it being different than any other two stroke engine have to choke it.Guess i'll now go get that case of plugs then:)

    Here we go with the usual put downs, But..Nope not kidding! Dogs are to big for a time consuming mere 20min walk,i want them tired with healthy activity.Quad is to big to have 2 dogs back there with them in the bed.Laugh as you may,i'm not getting tuckered out like last year!

    Most of these go-ped knock offs I see have what looks like another knock off of an old Komatsu Zenoah engine. The originals were very strong reliable engines, as for the knock off only time will tell.

    I suspect the same..i had to throw my $170 investment loosely as now it's back up to the $299.99 original p-tag. If it fails to satisfy i got some projects that i want to tinker with,as this beast is chain driven.
