Ciao only runs at high RPMs

I have a 1976 piaggio ciao and it will only run when I give it the throttle while I am peddling as fast as I can. It has new points, condenser, HT coil, and a new spark plug. I have re-adjusted the points but perhaps they are the problem still? Should I re-adjust them or something else? Any pointers would help.

Overpriced Parts /

Set points to correct gap for your bike prolly like 15-17 thousands

Time to correct specs for your bike Maybe 17 degrees I'm not sure I don't have a repair manual for your bike

My Sí does that, but it has to do with the starter clutch slipping.

Re: Ciao only runs at high RPMs

i would guess airleaks, messed up clutch, or bad condenser, if its all stock and complete and stuff.
