vkray,
Others will chime in I hope.
I cut the exhaust.
A, 1 inch stub at the exhaust flange and left a equal amount of exhaust pipe out of the muffler.
Bent conduit to clear, joining with U-clamps.. The guy I worked with a guy that got me motivated to supplant my longing for a Whizzer.

I'm no expert, but is the throttle open? If it just starts revving, I would think the problem lies with the throttle. It might be as simple as the idle needs to be lowered, there should be a black plastic screw, try adjusting that.

You are lucky, some first builds remain inert and up as yard art. Couple of strands of Christmas lights woven in.
Neighbors will commend you.
