very fast high engine heat
Spain New Rieju 2015 Marathon 185cc (* for Nepal)
Even when the engine is idling it generates very high heat. The head light also heats up very fast. The bike has just come out from the show room.

Rieju 2005 RS-1 Castrol 50
I am looking for bodyworks for the above bike. HELP PLEASE!!! I have been trying with no luck to find parts for this bike.
Thank you for your reply. I have attached photos of the bike in question,
a 2005 Rieju RS-1 Castrol 50. I need all original bodyworks fairings! I
would assume that they are sold in the base colors and then a graphic
package would need to be applied by me. We need the graphic package as well
as that is pretty much what makes this bike unique. Your help is much

Rieju Tango 50cc 2007 model
please advise on lubrication of this engine as handbook only shows engine/gearbox sump dont 2 strokes normally have a seperate header tank for the engine?
Sorry I do not have pictures but bike can be found on Rieju website, I have been back to the supplier who showed me the oil tank is situated under the seat as per most 2 strokes and it also has a low oil warning light on the digital speedo/dash, this information is not printed in the handbook.
The bike has now done 600kms and had its first service, I have done the first stage derestriction which involves seperating the exhaust manifold (header pipe) from the expansion chamber and removing a restrictor plate then changing the main jet from a 75 to 95, it will now do 75kmh/45mph and pulls strongly
next stage derestrict will be soon
