Ok, onto secondary possible culprits.

Idle adjustment screwed - I think we can discount that one, check to make sure, of course.

Throttle adujstment too slack - too slack and your throttle cable might actually not be holding open enough to keep sufficient fuel moving to sustain combustion.

Plug gap misadjusted - shorten it a hair and see if that helps.

Timing off - If it's a CDI, I dunno....but if it's points, adjust the timing a bit.

Do these one at a time so ya know which one fixes the problem, mind.

Re: Tomos Idle help.

if its idleing to low its one of five things

1 you need to turn the little idle screw in

2 the mixture is to rich or to lean make sure you have the correct jet in it

3 the rings are worn

4 a seal is out possibly the trans side which would cause it to cut off at idle

5 carb is dirty
