Cannot get to idle by itself

Thanks for the e mails and help. I can get the scooter to start now using starting fluid but it will not idle by itself. As long as I'm giving it some gas it runs perfectly but it will cut off when I return the throttle to idle. Any ideas?

Thanks again for your help

what kind is it?

Re: Cannot get to idle by itself

Sounds like the idle circuit in the carb is plugged. Have you taken it apart and cleaned it?

Have you adjusted the idle mixture screw? Have you tried screwing in the idle speed crew?
