so ive been running this setup for awhile
1978 honda hobbit pa50ii
-mlm peoples pipe
-mlm intake with vm18
-85 main jet, 12.5 idle, needle setting somewhere in the middle.
-70:1 premix with amsoil
i havent made any changes it the past month or so. my routine is start it with the choke lever, switch it off when i get it going. yesterday i was making my usual commute home and WOT for a bit and then it all of a sudden died like it ran out of gas. i rode about 6 miles without an issues.
i was trying to to trouble shoot on the road, pulled the plug and it was coffee w/ cream brown. i could get it to start on the stand and idle for a bit (maybe like 1 minute). i could also lightly hold the throttle and hobble along at < 30mph but when i pulled the throttle passed like 30% or whatever it would die like it wasnt getting fuel.
main jet clogged? too much oil? i see oil kinda all around my carb, not a ton, but its not super clean.
im thinking of switching back to my stock carb with an 88 jet. i would have to clean my carb with brake cleaner ever so often as well cause it wouldnt idle correctly.
