With the choke down, press the tickler for one count, start let her warm up a little turn the throttle fully releases the choke it should run. White or blue spark as long as it sparks you're ok...

Re: puch maxi luxe spark and stall problems

well the engine runs and idle great but at full throttle it wants to die

whats wrong?

should i clean out the carb again?

Is the choke plate hooked up right. The plate activating pin (set choke) should come way out again. U can try it without the engine on. Crank the grip all the way up you'l see the pin move up too.

Re: puch maxi luxe spark and stall problems

yea ive oped my carb many times and im sure its all togeather right

the choke opens when i give it throttle

mady its just a bit low on gas

well its getting cold out

maby ill just run it till it dies and clean out the carb good then pack it into the shead for the winter

i havent even been riding it much cuz school and work now

all i get is a weekend for free time

White or blue spark is OK, red or orange is not.

Have you checked the air box and exhaust pipe/port for blockage? Is fuel flowing freely from the petcock?

If you've changed the air box and/or exhaust, you may be running too lean and need to change to a larger jet.

You might check for air leaks around where the carb mounts to the intake tube and where the intake tube mounts to the engine. Spray a *little* WD40 around the connections, if the engine speed changes (or it stalls), you've found a leak.

I thinks it the cab cable I had the same problem with mine

Re: puch maxi luxe spark and stall problems

wats a cab cable

Re: puch maxi luxe spark and stall problems

not sure but i found the problem

just needed to make a new gasket for under the carb.

by the way whats a dry, black spark plug mean?

Re: puch maxi luxe spark and stall problems

how do u fix it?

Re: puch maxi luxe spark and stall problems

i made a gasket for under the carb and forgot that the hole is bigger on the cylinder head

i cut out using that 90 degree bend intake thing as a guide

so i made the hole a little bigger and it fixed it
