cold air = lean?

I took my moped out for a run today, since it was sunny out and seemed like a nice day to go out. So i bundled up and the 'ped started right up. I let it run for a few minutes, and it seemed to be idling fine...but when i started riding it around, the acceleration became kind of erratic. I know colder air = more oxygen..so is it possible that the colder air is making the mix too lean? Because if i would stand in one spot for a while..it seemed to level out a bit..

I never had this problem in my car, but then again my carb wasnt exposed to as much air as a moped would be...

Just wondering if anyone knew?

thanks
