    engine missing a beat every 10 seconds

    my 2 stroke takes full power no problem but every 10 seconds or so it seems to miss a beat. The bike kicks a little every time. I'm thinking it could be the Carb, spark plug or the plug lead. I think I'll start with the plug and go from there. Has anyone else had this type of problem ?
