Thank you all for the great feedback! I did get a few spare moments (from a bathroom remodel) to empty the gas tank and inside fuel filter. The filter did have some debris trapped. Approx. 10% covered with crud. Do you think this is enough debris to cause issues? I will order an inline filter as Gearnut suggested before I reinstall.
I will also take the suggestion to introduce myself. I am from the Midwest, Chicago to be specific, and have had my motorized Schwinn Jaquar for 5 years. Love the think to death, not many motorized bikes up here in Chicago, so I do get the "Looks" from envious bystanders
I will also troubleshoot the killswitch. Will let you all know how much luck I have.
Thanks again for all the great advice, and I am proud that there is a community of likeminded bike enthusiast, so give a helping hand.
