first off dynasty ... I have warned many people about these mini bikes (pocket bikes) you really gotta watch which ones you buy...more commonly in the cheaper ones you will find they don't run that well. You may want to look into the carbs first.

Dynasty. You might have a Sparky problem.
You mentioned gas and oil mix.... if it's a two stroke try changing your sparkplug. Two stroke mix should be 40:1 or so. Usually a pint of oil to five gallons of gas.
