Just bought used 154km. Cleaned up carb drained old gas. Got it to idle great but once you "Twist" it doesn't "Go"! Revs up but it seems to use up whats in the float bowl then starves out. Fuel isn't supplied fast enough. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

check the vacume line to the auto fuel shut off valve
check the fuel filter
check for kinks or plugged gas line-

remove the gas line at the carb put it in a jar
disconnect the vacume line at the carb
suck on the vacume line and fuel should flowfreely
into the jar

Very nice Harry! This forum rocks. You just got free help and advise from a T&G dealer.

Thanks for the info, I'll give it a try. Once it's up and running I'll hop on the Mukilteo/Clinton ferry and take a spin around your island! Thanks again!
