Runs for a bit, then engine cuts out

Hey all,

So I recently bought my first moped. Kinetic brand, 1998, 49cc.

A couple problems,

1st. When I'm driving it around and stop at a stop sign or even slow down, the engine cuts out and I have to start it up again.

2nd. After only about a mile, the engine cuts out completely, and it becomes hard to even move.

I'm rather frustrated. Anyone have anything that might help?

Thanks!

That should have a cdi ignition so we can rule out a condensor issue. Check for air leaks around the carb intake area with carb spray. If you have a leak, motor will lower its RPM's, maybe even die when you spray the leak area

Is your gas fresh and mixed to the correct ratio?
