Thank u

Could also have developed an air leak or possibly an exhaust leak. Check that all of your bolts and nuts are tight still. But you may want to remove the intake and exhaust and inspect the gaskets, one may have gone out. But check the stuff slewfoot mentioned first as they are easier and quicker checks. Then move on to this.

got it running. Air box full of debris. Not sure how but had to clean carb. Thanx for info on jets being clogged

Re: Tomos won’t run when choke is off

Am I to assume that the port on carb that connects to gas line is called banjo petcock that has filter screen if not what is banjo petcock

Re: Tomos won’t run when choke is off

I guess that’s what happens when u fabricate your own air box

Yeah make sure there is some kind of filter in your "airbox" glad you figured out the problem.
