I just bought my first ever bike, a SP70, 2 days ago. It's running fine, mA. But I noticed a little problem today in the morning. I had switched off the fuel after I had parked it at home yesterday and today when I turned the fuel on, it didn't immediately start. I had to try and kick several times before it finally started. Any particular reason for that happening? Also, a guy told me to keep the switch at "Reserve" at all times. Shouldn't it be at "ON"? Sorry, I'm a complete noob when it comes to motorcycles.
A few other things I noticed:
1) The dial on the speedometer is a bit shaky. I don't know if I'm riding at 30, 35 or 40KM/h. It seems to be jiggling continuously.
2) The seat is a bit uncomfortable and the handlebars seem to be too low. (Maybe that's just cause I'm 6'3")
3) The engine shuts down if I let it stand idle for a couple of seconds.
4) It gets hot too quickly. (Rode 10KMs today with idle time in between, didn't cool off completely even after half an hour had passed)
Hoping you can guide me through these issues. (None of them seem to be too serious)
It'd be great if you can give some additional running/maintenance advice.
