So I just built a zeda 80, after I finished I tested it and it road great for 2 or 3 minutes then bogged down and died. Now it'll start when I pop the clutch but won't accelerate no matter how much throttle I give it and eventually dies.

I tightened the spark plug, messed with the idle screw, and moved my c screw on the carb up a notch and got it to actually drive for another minute, but then it started doing the same thing as before.

No idea what's wrong and no real idea how to trouble shoot it either so any help would be appreciated.
 
What oil ratio are you running? Did you torque down the head bolts? Can you post some pictures of your build
Oil is 40:1 I think, the head bolts are on tight last I checked but ig I can give them a one over. And here's a couple pics

I'll add oil tomorrow then before I start messing with it. And ya, one of the bolts sheared through because I tightened it too much. I have one of those spring mounted ones that goes beneath the gear box I just have to figure out how to put it together.

Do u think the oil is why it won't run?

No, it's not the oil, but the oil can cause issues.
