My Maxi had been running fine all day, when it just sorta sputtered out.
Symptoms: Riding at full speed, then the engine very suddenly loses all power. When I pull the throttle, makes a choking sound until eventually just sputters out all together by the end of the block.
I pull over, take apart the carb, clean it all out with carb cleaner. No change. I pull out the spark plug, a bit oily, wipe it off, check spark (was bright out, but I did see an orange spark). After I put it back in, I give it a kick. I hear combustion for maybe 4 piston cycles before it quickly just stops. I change out the spark plug all together, no change.
So, carb seems fine, spark plug appeared to be working, and there were no leaks in the head, and I had plenty of gas. Whats going on??
