Broken Throttle Slide on Carb

Alright. So I was troubleshooting my Chappy today. I have been using a microfiber cloth between the air filter and carb to restrict air flow. Without this cloth the bike would sometimes start but immediately die out.

I ran around town a few times with this setup but I decided to just fix the problem now instead of ruining the moped. Great idea on my part.

I removed the cloth and it was drenched in 2-Stroke oil. I could ring that shit out of it.

Also, I replaced all the gaskets on the carb and intake and made sure there were no air leaks.

I noticed that there is a chip on the bottom of the throttle slider facing the engine. Could this be causing all of my starting and running problems? It's a 19mm Mikuni carb from the 70's btw.

lean! good call checking for airleaks, maybe needs upjet, maybe just dirty.

as for soaking the cloth it's pretty normal to have some blowback on a 2 stroke.

what sort of chip is this chip. I imagine it could be a problem, but maybe would just make idle erratic
