Re: Need help getting it started
Here's some tips -
First - leave the choke alone, honestly, on these chinese motors it's unnecessary - even before breakin.
Second, when starting your motor, drop the clutch all at once. It's unnecessary to do it gradually.
Third. The idling issue could be two things. The first is the idle speed, which you adjust with the cable tension on top of the carb and the throttle grip, and also the idle adjustment screw on the side of the carb. As well though, the clutch could be grabbing when it's disengaged, putting extra stress on it and killing the motor.
