Default Re: Too much choke?

Four stroking is when the two stroke engine is so rich it chokes on it's own exhaust and intake mix and basicly fires every other revolution, like a four stroke.

It is the sound your engine SHOULD make when very lightly loaded. As soon as you begin to crack the throttle and load the engine, it then should break back into a clean two stroke "buzz", not a four stroke "staccatto". If your engine takes a few seconds to "clean out" when you open the throttle, you are just a little too rich. If it never quits four stroking, well, you will know it.
