    Welcome to the forum.

    What do you mean by losing throttle?

    Welcome to the forum. Glad you joined us.

    Pull the air breather off and look in the back of the carb and roll the throttle back and forth and see if the slider is going up and down. Up when you increase throttle and down when you decrease.......................
