Re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip
Probably not the rain that caused it to run bad, but an intake leak WILL cause a runaway/high idle & poor top end performance. This applies to 2 strokes & 4 strokes. Replace the stud/nut-bolt and maybe use a bit of RTV gasket sealer (not too much) to seal up the gasket, should get it to run decent.
Norm's Repair Center is a good place to post if you have questions regarding problems, he's quite knowledgeable and willing to share his wisdom for free.
