    my new 48cc 2str runs great. When I need to stop though, and engage the clutch, the whole motor dies. But it just starts right back up and continues to run great. I've only rode it 3*, and am wondering if this is ok or could be a problem? And the only wiring I have is for the spark plug. We couldn't get a spark with all the wires hooked up for some reason. Any advice would be helpful! thnks, joe

    1, screw in the idle screw.
    2, lower the needle, by raising the clip that will lean the low end out.

    how hot the engine is can make a difference. i can start mine, let it idle for half an hour, but if i go for a ride somewhere, then stop at the lights...it just dies. iunno :)
