    first, havent riden since the slight crash because i went on vacation. but, last time i rode my bike, the motor wasnt acting normaly. it wouldnt stay idled. it would start, but would give no power to the wheel and if i gave it some gas it would eather bog down or get power for a seccond then no power and bog down(or go through a couple of cycles of power, no power, power ect). it took me over 2.5 miles to get it running to the point where i could ride it with the motor running. it has an odometer so i kept track. i tried useing the choke, full, half, and none at all. it acted the same no matter where the choke was at. everything was tight, nothing was loose and i hadnt crashed yet so i have no idea whats going wrong.

    any info is appreciated, ill be able to check and try things out this weekend.

    if it was smoking a lot at that time, I'd guess your motor got full of fuel - if so, you just run it till it clears out

    in that case, I'd be checking for loose head gasket or damaged ignition wire or loose carb
