well i went on vacation for a week and when i got back it took a mere hour to get my moped started for the first time. I think it was a combination of many things going wrong. one of the main things was that a previous owner had tried to do something to fix the intermittent ground on the headlight. he had run an extra wire from the headlight body to what he thought was a ground wire. this wire turned out to be the kill switch wire. so, until i disconnected it, i only got spark when the headlight's ground went out. But, after squirting some starting fluid and pedalling furiously, it started. I drove it around all day yesterday. man these things are incredable fun. the only problem ive been having is that once the engine warms up, i lose all of my mid/low power unless i use the choke. once im going about 20-25, i have to release the choke to get faster. should i be getting a bigger jet for my carb? or might it have something to do with timing? one more question, how good should i be locking this thing up when i take it out? most of the thefts reported on this site it seems were from the backyard of owner's homes. Im not worried about that because i keep it in the garage. will a fork lock and a u-lock be sufficient? thnx.
