    Hey guys i'm new to this forum so first HIIIII :D . Anyways so i bought myself a motorised kit , i fitted it on all good but if got a problem with my throttle . Everytime i pull the throttle it won't go to full revs it's also very stiff and hard . It sounds like it's only going to 40 percent of the engine's capacity . I tried the adjustments on the handle bar and carby but still nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks guys :)

    Engine : 80cc
    Stock throttle and cable (Came with kit)

    first, remove any zip ties put on to attach cable to frame - these cables need to be free to prevent binding - you can put loose ones on to keep it from swinging in the wind once it is working well

    next, take off air filter so you can watch slide move and check that it goes all the way to top & bottom

    note, a new motor often takes a while to run in & get full power
