I have a 1976 honda pc50 .
It starts up great and idles great at the beginning.
When I ride it for a 1km or so, it seems to lose a little bit of power.
The problem is that when I stop after that, it idles sometimes, sometimes it doesn't idle and dies (or and as soon as i give it some gas from a standstill, it dies very quickly (ie. as soon as i open throttle) - sometimes)
I checked the petcock, it is ok, fuel is getting in the carb (maybe not fast enough) - i checked the gas cap hole, it is fine. Once I start it again, it seems to run ok - until the next lights :)
I don't know what could be causing this. Anyone have an idea?
the other thing is that it backfires when i let close throttle quickly (so the points must be off a bit) - could this be it?
I checked the oil is fine. the muffler is not the problem.
I did a plug chop - it is good.
Any help is appreciated.
