    Welcome to the forum! Most mabbers don't get out of bed till noon Moscow time, so be patient for relevant answers. What mix are you using in your gas? Is the plug wet when you checked it? The clutch should freewheel at low rpm so it can idle at a stand still, if it's grabbing at low rpm an adjustment is needed...............................

    24:1 is a little better, always use air-cooled 2-stroke oil BTW. You should get it to run with what you have if everything works right:

    Start with a half tank of gas. 1 liter (32-33oz) is perfect. Make sure petcock on tank is open, set the choke to max. Crack open tank cap, even.

    Pedal to about 10MPH, pop clutch, pedal hard. Give it varying amounts of throttle for 2-3 seconds at a time. Pedal hard.

    It should catch and start. If it starts, pull in clutch and give it throttle so you can warm it up for a minute or 2.

    If it don't start get a 4-stroke or jump in front of a bus. Just kidding :D
