idle issues

    First build: No Idle, No Throttle, No Power,...no hope?

    Hi everyone, I am BEYOND frustrated with my motorized bike. I finished assembling my bike yesterday and it starts - but just barely. I peddle up to about 5-10 mph and release the clutch to engage the motor. The motor engages but there is absolutely no power whatsoever. There is also no idle -...

    Revving and bogging

    Hey there motor bikers!! Happy new year and all that jazz. I'm banging my head against the wall here on my 3rd build. Starts up great when fully choked, but begins to rev like crazy when choke is switched off. The engine also bogs when throttle is turned. I can't find any air leaks, carb...

    Engine idle's high after ascending hill or wide open throttle

    Hello everyone, I just purchased a two stroke Schwinn Stingray OCC off of a gentleman this week. It's used and has been through three owners so far but the last guy didn't ride it as much as he fixed it from the previous owner. I am completely new to motorized bikes so I really don't know...

    Help my new Motorized Bicycle wants to kill me!

    Hey all, Just finished building my first MB over weekend. I'm technically minded but 100 percent noob when it comes to this stuff. Anyways its a chinese POWERKING 60cc kit. It fires up ok, but there is no play whatsoever in the throttle. From what I can gather I have installed it properly...

    Honda Hobbit High revs then dies

    This has recently happened to my '82 Hobbit were it will only idle with the choke on, and then quickly high rev and die with the choke off unless your giving it a bunch of gas. Is there a fix? I've taken it into a shop cleaned the carb twice, just put in a new crank so I highly doubt there is a...
