i post again.

here i am in Chicago during the peddy cash hosted events and i can't even join them on all their fun rides. shoot!

coming home last night i was riding along and hit a bunch of bumps in the road going about 20mph or so, which shot me up in air and the bike took it pretty hard i think. no crash though.

afterwards, when i gave the bike any gas it didn't want to go, so i started pedaling pretty fast and giving it gas. It's a good thing i was only 2 blocks from home. afterwards i couldn't get it to start without putting the choke switch down. with the ciao, as you might now, when you go to start the bike and give it gas after pedaling, the choke switch goes back to the off position. to keep it running at all i had to hold the switch down and give it gas.

i tried taping it down just to ride it down the block, but once i popped it off the stand and tried to accelerate, it died again.

i took the air filter and carb off today and cleaned the carb a bit, put everything on and still the same?

what do you think and/or suggest? this has to do with the fuel to air mixture correct?

thanks
