Re: pleeeez help!
CDI might be breaking down. Had the same thing happen to me. Not so much your burn residue scenario. I got the same personality traits out of the motor. It would run for a short time then loose power. The said CDI was warm to the touch from grounding out internally.
When you get it all figured out do make clean and solder all your wire connections.
Still gotta have a since of humor.
