Put your pants on and go start the engine. Your mom would have just killed me at 11. I would of never made it to 13.

Work on it when mom is not home.

Mines been whitewater rafting twice, horseback riding multiple times, and hot air ballooning twice. A very unique grandmother.

66? I'm 15 and my grandmother is 84 or something! And not especially the rebel type... more like the living in the 40's type, same goes for grandpa who's even older, lol.

just take the spring off. if it revs up shut it off. no big deal. might wanna just derail your chain though.

raise the idle with the black screw under the air filter, you will have to remove a cover and then its phillips head.
