puch magnum running but bogging out

Just got a hold of a Puch magnum xk it starts and runs fine but bogs out with throttle. Any one have any suggestions. I am mechanically inclined but am a newbie to peds.

Clean the carb and make sure the banjo filter is clean too. Use carb cleaner. Take the float out and clean the rubber tip on the float bowl valve. Make sure your float is working and is not full of fuel.

Check for air leaks.

Check your jetting.

Thanks I'll try that out and post how it works out.

Have you checked the exhaust pull it and see if the exhaust port is clean also do what deezy told me and burn your muffler to clean the carbon out of it

Re: puch magnum running but bogging out

are you running it without an airbox??

Re: puch magnum running but bogging out

Stock jet is designed for airbox, remove the airbox without upjetting 4-6 numbers, and it will bog with throttle

Re: puch magnum running but bogging out

any other possibilities? I'm in a very similar situation. Like, the same situation.

Re: puch magnum running but bogging out

How do I clean/burn out the exhaust?

okay keep it simple

first check your horn wiring

if it was bypassed it could just be grounding

second if it has a bing the choke off position is up

if it bogs right away with any throttle dollars to doughnuts

its an electrical drain or an air mix issue

my puch runs weird on the summer blend of gas

i need a super hot plug using a 5 hs normal is a 7 hs

double check the carb to see if the choke gate

is attached to the pull stem

puchs like the cold no choke should be needed unless below 30 degrees

below -10 you may need the tickle valve

ps check the spring on the tickle valve it could be letting it flood

good luck i hope i helped

Re: puch magnum running but bogging out

Thanks I'll check those things out

Re: puch magnum running but bogging out

Re: puch magnum running but bogging out

shiny it is right now. I used a dremel and was VERY carefull when removing the carbon from the port though.
