New H-M Pacer won't run...Please help!

I just bought a new 2004 Hero Majestic Pacer. I put it all together and started it up. It ran for a few short trips up and down my road, and then died. It turns over when I pedal, but as soon as I release the clutch and choke, it dies. I've tried a few adjustments and only once have gotten it to actually start up again, only to die at the end of the driveway. Yes, I've pre-mixed the gas and oil, in a 3% mix for the break-in period, which is 1000km (right?). Seems like the throttle isn't adjusted properly, or perhaps the carb? I'm just learning, so I don't want to make any major adjustments, otherwise I may make the problem worse. Since it's a new bike, I feel like it's got to be a simple problem that someone who knows anything about moped engines could fix. But who knows. I'm open to suggestions. Thanks for your input!

Is the dealer you bought it from too far away for you to take it back there?

Yeah. It was shipped to me. I'm going to call them today, though, and see what they say.

"I release the clutch and choke"

are you doing this at the same time??? usually a choke will need to stay on for about a minute after the ped is running.

give that a try if you haven't please,
