puch

i have a problem with my puch. i ride for about an hour then it starts to die but then goes, and does it repeatedly, also i chnge the spark plug 3 timmes and after every ride it turns black and oily. Please help!

Re: puch

if it runs ok for an hour there's probably nothing wrong.. maybe your choke is accidentally , partially closing for some reason.. This would make the engine run rich and die and foul the plug like you describe.

Check your carburetor / choke cables and see if something is not quite right.

Re: puch

you runnin a bit rich, maybe your airflow is being hampered in some way.... do as joew says

Re: puch

what oil/gas mixture are you running??

as mentioned, check that your choke is not sticking open.

always start with the simplest solutions

Re: puch

my puch is doing the same thing again. could it be a dirty carb?

Re: puch

clean carb, perform a plug chop. what mixture are you running???

i wouldnt think its a dirty carb. does it run /start fine and then die after a while? does it sputter and die after sitting at a light for a few minutes? try putting the needle in the carb slide on the upper most notch, leaning out the carb. and check your timing.-jason
