I'm not talking about just starting... You can't just take off from a dead stop like it's a motorcycle, you have to use the pedals for the first 20 or so feet to help the engine take off. (even after it's started)
Also... choke lever 'up' to start, 'down' after it warms up, like 2 Door said...
Tell us how it's going?
