how can you tell if your ignition timing is advanced waay too far? the reason behind this is that i believe this is the reason my moped is so difficult to start. and when it does start. it fires like once every 10-15 pedals. then it will then pick up and then be running. it usually takes a total of 50 pedals and 5-6 minutes just to get it started. and idles really poorly. itmisfires alot and sometimes just dies for no reason.

i have an identical moped with an identical motor and it starts right up on the first kick. idles great, fires at the right time every time.

this is really pissing me off because one time, the f**king thing died and left me stranded in the middle of nowhere and wouldn't start for like an hour.
