Cold, it fires right up, and purrs like a kitten, and idles like a champ. Unfortunately, after about 15-20 minutes of riding, when I try to fire it back up, it will start back up with a bit of work, and will drive perfectly when throttled, but as soon as it idles, the engine cuts off. It'll start right back up, and will run when I keep it throttled, but will not idle. I can be riding at 30mph down the road and hit the clutch to shift, and it will immediately die, firing back up when I release the clutch and the scooter is moving in gear (with throttle). I didn't have this issue before I rebuilt the engine, so it is definitely an issue I created.
I have cleaned the jets, etc..., but it doesn't seem to help. I have been told that it may be one of the following:
- Condenser overheating (I don't think the Vespatronic kit has one)
- Air leak in carb (had that tested-out and it appears to be sealed perfectly)
- Clogged Jets (doesn't seem to help when I clean them out)
- Vapor Lock (seems to be the most likely issue)
I cleaned the vent hole in my gas cap, but that doesn't seem to help.
Any suggestions would be awesome. Let me know if there is any other relevant info I left out.
Thanks in advance,
