On the side of the carb is two screws used for adjusting the idle mix. Dont go messing with these until you're quite sure of what you're doing.
The proper method for setting them has been mentioned before.
Also, I would suggest giving the carb a good cleaning before adjuting it if you havent already, since the Express carb is Very sensative to the slightest dirt inside.
You can run as high of a gas octane as you feel like, but the Express doesnt require anything above the base level. You shouldnt get anything in the way of performance increase from it, except maybe from some of the additives cleaning out gunk that can be otherwise manually removed.
Full synthetic two stroke oil should be fine.
The Transmission is ment to take 0.79 quart of non-synthetic SAE-30 engine oil after an oil change. For most this means a hair beneath the fill plug line.
Synthetic oils have been known to cause performance issues with the Express, and there's some debate over whether the Express transmission runs in the proper temp range for the multigrade oils.
Do Not Charge a 6 Volt Battery With a 12 Volt Charger!
Set it to 6v only, and wait the extra time unless you'd like to buy a new battery every few weeks. A tiny 6v battery charger is safe to plug in and leave plugged in overnight on the Express's battery. After that it should stay charged so long as you ride the bike regularly.
Dont forget to remove the little fluid filler caps before you charge it, and add a tiny bit of distilled water if the fluid level is beneath the lines marked on the side.
