    So, my bike was working fine for a long time, and then it randomly started needing a LOT of pedaling to get it going. Then, the throttle felt really loose. So I went to add tension, and NO MATTER WHAT I ADJUST, I can't get the throttle "tight". Now, the only way to get it going is to turn OFF the choke and pedal extremely fast.

    Before, I would have to start it with the choke on then turn it off, and it barely took any pedaling at all. I have tried replacing the throttle cable, the throttle, and have also tried adjusting the carb's pin plate. Thanks in advance!

    Is your clutch cable nice and tight? Is there resistance when u pull your clutch cable lever? It not, tighten it up using the little brass holder with the screw in it. Pull more line thru it and see if that fixes it.
