On top of that it looks like the friend I purchased the bike from fell on the side of the battery and the frame is squeezing the battery so I can't get it out for the risk of causing it to leak. So I can really use some help!!

Just an fyi to everyone. I just rode my 2006 Lifan 200cc on the Lake Erie Loop. 674 miles in about 12 hours of hard riding! The only problem I had is my ignition switch vibrated loose and I lost the electrical. Bike ran great!! I was very pleased with how it held up!

Did you find out what was wrong with your bike? I just bought a 200 Dual Sport and the same thing is happening, won't run without choking it. Would be great if you could help me out.

I just bought an Eagle 250 (Lifan). It came in a box. A friend helped assemble it. The brake light switch was broken in shipment. Right now, I can't get it to operate without choking it. I think the carb is "jacked". If I can't figure out what's wrong, I'll have to get it replaced.
I also bought saddle bags and a rear bag for accessories. I will have to send them back for replacement. The quality control is really bad. The screw holes for the bag frames do not align with the bike.
I have high expectations once it is running properly, but I am really frustrated at the moment.

Just bought a 200 Dual Sport just for trail ridin. Had old gas in it. Cleaned the carb inside and out. Now it starts and runs only when it is fully choked. Does anyone know what the problem might be? Would really appreciate any help given!! Thanks

I own a Lifan / Ricardo 200 cc R3, mine is a 2007, i have 3,5xx miles on it, i love it, i get 410 miles to a 2.75 gallon tank of gas in town, ive had to do a lil work on it but i got it used and figured it had been rode hard since i got it cheap, most of the parts i rplaced came off e-bay, you can buy a brand new carb for uner 50 bucks so worrying so much about cleaning a bad one seems silly to me, Also I have a Iron Pony motorcycle shop in my town, everything ive needed i just take it off my bike and take it in, they can always find a matching part, these cheaper bikes don't design many of there own parts so usually there is a older bike or dirt bike that uses the same exact part

Thanks for the info!! Was worried I got a bad deal. Got this one used but it only had 110 miles on it and figured I would take a chance. Hopefully everything will turn out ok.

All I did was remove the drain plug underneath, watch for the spring that is above the large drain plug. I don't have a filter on mine so I just drained the oil out and put about 1 guart back in to fill it.
That's all the oil it took to fill up again.
