    hey guys i have a biigggg problem that i cant solve...

    this is my first day on my bike and im having problems with the choke/idle measurements...the throttle is really sensitive and when i go to stop and pull the clutch in the engine continues to accelerate and rev really high, any ideas to fix this hopefully minor problem??
    ive adjusted the throttle and choke so when i stop the engine idles but when i pull the throttle during idle, the engine dies...how could this be? any help is accepted, i just want to riddddeeee!!

    Its an 80cc jet slant head. I think its an air leak because it tends to bogg down when I give it throttle

    yeah, sounds like it. lean for some reason.

    so. check where the carbie mounts onto the pipe...sometimes its prevented from goin on completely, so leaking here.

    remove the pipe and slap some gasket goo on the gasket, then do it back up.

    check that the bowl actually has fuel in it. and the fuel height too.
    and that the jets nice n clear...
