Get it fixed ... you need back pressure on the engine to allow it to operate properly and not be damaged ... PLUS - big benefit - you will not annoy the neighbors and as a bonus, you will preserve your hearing for your old age.

Engine temp guage runs half way while riding


That sounds ok, it would be more of a problem if it went over half sometimes. The only other things that may make it flucuate could be a sticky thermostat or an air lock somewhere in the hoses, but these generally cause overheating. At half way it is not overheating.

If the bike has knobby type (bumpy tread) they do make noise.Just be sure they have the correct air pressure in them.
Try to support the bike so you can manually spin the wheels like if the bike had a center stand.Feel while turning, to see if the wheels feel to tight or loose.And try to feel any play in the wheels. Or hear any stange noise.
While your are at it go ahead a drain the oil and change it with a good quality oil. The bike should have come with a book to tell you what type oil it wants.Dont be afraid to change the oil more than it is suppost to be.They dont hold that much oil and the shifting of the gears will generate alot of break in metal dust that needs to come out of the engine.
To say if you made a mistake in buying the bike remains to be seen because their is no history of the Chinese bikes in this country.
If I could ride the bike I could give you a better opinion.
Another thing you could do is, while riding the bike with it makeing the sound,pull in the clutch and put it in neutral.Is the feeling gone?
This can help to be sure the noise is not engine generated.

How to ride a harley?


# Find a suitable and rideable Harley Davidson motorcycle. Not every Harley is suitable for 'cruising' or riding distances shorter than a few blocks or miles. If you really want to enjoy all a Harley has to offer, find a Harley that runs well, is comfortable, and one that you can handle. If you find the bike too heavy, drop down a level or improve your riding skills on another, smaller bike first. In general, the bike "heaviness" runs in the following order, from heaviest to lightest: 1. Road King 2. Softail (includes Fatboy) 3. Dyna Glide 4. Sportster * A note about the Sportster: Some consider it the most difficult to ride, despite its lightness. This is due to its relative unbalance and high placement of the gas tank thus raising the center of gravity. Despite this, it remains one of the most fun Harley's to ride, and is exemplified in carrying the honor of being the longest running production motorcycle in United States history. # Decide how you're going to get your Harley, either by borrowing, renting, or buying. Sometimes renting or borrowing (provided that you have a motorcycle license) is the best way to introduce yourself to the world of Harleys without a huge financial commitment. # Observe the bike. Look at the subtleties and richness of the chrome, or lack thereof, and special features unique to the design of the particular Harley you are going to ride. Prep the bike for ride by checking the gas level, tires, lights, and any obvious flaws or defects. # Get on the bike. Remember, "right is wrong." Get on the bike from the left side, as it is good etiquette. Feel the handlebars, feel the weight of the bike underneath you. Pull the choke if need-be. Then... # Start the bike. Listen to it. Feel it underneath you. Let it warm up as you warm up to the bike. # Ride the bike. See the road scurry underneath you. Feel the wind in your face and on your body. See how it's just much better when on the bike. Feel the rumble in between your legs. Lean back. See the blur of the side road as you look straight ahead. # Enjoy the ride. Harley Davidson motorcycles enjoy a rich and storied tradition. Riding one is not about the speed or handling of the bike per se, but rather, the enjoyment of the feel and embodiment of the entire experience. Look at the scenery, hear and feel the engine. Look to your right... to your left. Even look up at the sky - all the while making sure to keep another eye on the road to stay safe. Beware of 'cagers' ie. car drivers.
