I have myself a mid 90's kinetic tfr that is having a few engine problems and I am hoping someone will help me out.
Admittedly, the moped has not been run regularly over the last couple of years. It has been started and ridden around the block about once every couple of months. Unfortunately, the last few attempts have not produced the greatest results.
I can get it started and it seems to run fine for a minute or two (just long enough for me to get a decent ways from my home...). Then, without warning, the engine acts like it is very flooded and the engine shuts down almost instantly (not a freeze, it just stops firing). Now here is the weird part, I can get it re-started, but only with the choke engaged. The engine will continue to run very poorly with the choke engaged, but as soon as I open the throttle and disengage the choke, the engine cuts out again as if it was very flooded.
So far I have replaced the plug, made sure the gas vent thingy is not clogged and cleaned the carb - but no luck.
