So fresh rebuild on motor. After warmed up, when u open up throttle the motor dies or pops and dies. Starts right back up. Cams set correct as well as timing. Havent changed anything from original set up. Seems like its responsive when cold but when warm it wont respond. Any suggestions? Thanks

Do you have an aftermarket fuel screw? I recently had a similar problem only to find out that after taking the carb off a couple times without fishing out the fuel screw o-ring, the last time the fuel screw went back in it neatly sliced the o-ring... And if the carb is off to check that, check that the accelerator pump is squirting too... Any carb cleaner gets in there and black rubber goo can subsequently be found in all sorts of random places.

yes I do have an aftermarket fuel screw. I'll make sure that there is nothing is wrong with that. the last time I looked and appeared like the accelerator pump is working but I will double check that as well. Thanks

Your pilot jet is likely plugged or partially plugged with dried fuel varnish.
