I just put my 'ped back together last night. cleaned the cylinder, head and piston, cleaned reasembled carb and made new gaskets for everything. The problem is it now runs almost as if it is running rich. Starts up great but goes buhh ba buhh buhh buhh..braaaaaaaap bungggg bh bhuhh (for those not in tune with moped noise writing the brap indicates strong running engine everything else is bogging noises). it will run ruff like this all day.
Even though it sounds like its running real rich inspection of the plug indicates that it may even be running a little lean. But since it wont rev up its hard to make a call based on plug colour. Anyway.. I guess the only real clue is that there is almost no trottle response. however I don't think that there is anything wrong with my cable as it appears to be pulling the needle the whole way.
I'm pretty positive this is a carb related problem (messing with the idle and air screws gave minimal change at best)However I did remove the cylinder base gasket to raise the compression (hopefully get more power) but I cant image that its related. Anyway, if anyone has any suggestions id like to hear them.
