A few tips seeing how I own something like 5 RCMK's. Keep the spark plug gap at around .016" otherwise you'll be frying secondary coils The stock recoil starter well, sucks. Get yourself an Easy-Start type of recoil, either from Zenoah or the off-brand ones from Xippkits, Warehouse Hobbies or Gizmo Motors. Most will require a different motor mount as the hole for the starter pawl is larger unless you have a way to enlarge it. The Zippkits mount has just enough room for them to fit. It's makes starting the motor so much easier as it takes less muscle to pull it and spins it over faster. My shoulders are about shot and these babies are a blessing.
