    Default Mini moto problem!

    Just bought a mini moto from my friend, it was running fine the other day then I have just been to pick it up and start it and it isn't starting now;

    - It starts then soon cuts out, I have tried putting the choke on but still cuts out, it tends to idle fine then starts idling to fast then cuts out.
    - There is petrol and 2 stroke mixing oil init.
    - the pull start sometimes doesn't start it when I try and pull it again after it has just been on.

    Any ideas of what it could be, thanks

    sounds like a lawnmower to me. How many wheels does it have?

    Fresh fuel & oil mix in it, leave the top off of the tank and sattr it - it it runs fine, try putting the tank cap back on, if it cuts out then the breather needs cleaning out.

    Further to that / if you have no joy then whip the carb off and clean it - easy to work on these things as theres sod all to them.

    Sounds like a candidate for a bonfire.

    If its been standing a while could be dirty fuel as ours did that, so drained the system and refilled with fresh premix. Is it a CAG or something a bit more complicated with water cooling ?
