Timming Problem

My moped was not running very well, so I changed the timming using the points. After I changed the timming the moped started on one kick, but it now has no throtle. The thing will only run on full throttle when I lower the throttle the engine stays at full throttle. Why do you guys think it is doing this? The throttle worked fine before I changed the timming??? Any duggestions would be great!

Off the cuff, I would say that your timing was so far off that you had the idle set way up to compensate. The only way to set it up correctly is to set the timing to spec., then adjust the carb.
