It is a 2 stroke and this means that oil is mixed with the petrol to be burnt in the combustion chamber. If the engine runs without popping and *******, you shouldn't worry about it.

Hi, Mr Juergen,

From your explanation, it is clear the problem is on your jetting system i.e. the main jet on your carbureter.
When in idle the main jet is not in use but pilot jet. While you increase the RPM the main jet has the main role to accelerate the RPM/speed.
You can try re-clean again the main jet nozzle on your bike and let's see what happening.

Please note : over time your main jet can be deteroirated and if this is happen you may need to get new carbureter kit. It contains jettings, seals, o-ring etc.

Best luck.

You really should obtain an owner's handbook - and read it.

Some 2-stroke engines used an oil injection system which is or was considered superior to mixing oil and petrol which is fine and dandy if it works ok and if the rider can remember to top up the oil container - if it works and is topped up there is no need to mix oil with the fuel.

Some oil injection systems proved unreliable and some riders proved unreliable and both scenarios result in expensive engine damage.
Many more experienced riders opt to forget the oil container and play safe by mixing oil with the fuel while others continue to use the oil injection system, insisting it is adjusted so there is a hint of blue smoke from the exhaust proving it is working.

There should be a mechanical release fitted. Insert your ignition key. Push the key away from you, further into the key hole. While pushing the key turn it counter clockwise, the wrong way. The seat should 'pop' open.
