Puch running hot and have to adjust the idle often

Hey team;

(1) I just got my moped street legal and took it out today for her initiation ride, I went about 1 mile to the beer store and back and when I got back I noticed the exhaust was really hot... (My leg accidentally touched it) Is it normal for an exhaust to get that hot after a 1-2 mile ride? I am about 175 lbs.

(2) I have to adjust the idle nearly every time I ride, and it still stalls at lights often.

(3) Real slow up hills and accelerating.

The ped is a Maxi (not sure what kind) 2hp 2speed. I dont know much about peds or engines and would like to try simple fixes first.

Thanks for any advise!

Bill
