    I am new to this, but not completely ignorant. Anyway I got this motor recently and it runs great and such, it just wont idle. When I pull the clutch to stop it just shuts down. Is the idle supposed to be resting position for the throttle cable, if so then thats my problem cause there is no gap in the carb, or is it the idle screw I need to adjust?

    Idle screw I should think.

    I think that if you play around a little with the throttle screw -- things might come together for you --- a point of interest -- learned the hard way in the past -- when making adjustments -- keep track of how many turns in or out that we adjust -- just in case -- we want to go back to where we started..

    I got it to idle just fine now, but I have a question about killing it. I don't have a kill switch as of now. So what I am doing is pulling the choke up and giving it some gas and it seems to kill it just fine, is that hard on it at all?

    it should die within seconds just from giving it full choke
    ...if it doesn't, you probaly have an intake leak (the air has to be coming from somewhere)

    My bike didn't used to die strait away on full choke, moving the carb mixture c clip up a notch (richer) sorted it out.
