Ok so mine is doing this....Should it stop once I start putting less oil in the gas. Rite now its 5.5oz to a gallon. Sometimes it does it and sometimes it doesnt. Mind you that im only on my 3rd tank of gas...still 20:1 fuel.
im also having problems with fuel running out of my air filter, when this happens I have to kill the gas at the petcock and peddle through the flood until it fires up. What is my problem and how can I fix it?
