    I need some suggestions on my brand new build. Had it going perfect, but now it won’t stay running. Already replaced spark plug, the carb looks perfect, clutch engages fine.

    Are there any tricks to these I don’t know about?

    I had similar problems. One of mine was the float in the carb. Out of the box the damn thing would fill up with gas and sink. Eventually realized I was flooding. On the NT/Speed carbs there is a little weeping hole on the face inside the air cleaner. This will trickle out for when the bowl over fills. Like you, not familiar with these engines yet. Took me a month of Sundays to diagnose.
    BTW, the repair? $5 for the float and $9 SHIPPING!!! To heck with that! Amazon. Upgrade to Dellorto style carb. $17. Free shipping. Everybody get Prime. Worth every penny.
