do you turn the choke off as soon as it starts? you should leave it choked for a couple seconds until it starts to rev up a little.

I think krotchwaffle needs to read the "how did you come up with your name" thread, I'd like to hear this one. :thumbsup:
Make sure your air filter is clean as well and don't let your 8 year old son clean and oil your filters. He may forget squeeze out the excess filter oil. :awww:

I had some of this as well. Assuming it is jetted correctly, you may just need to turn the idle up a bit. It is black thumb srew on the same side. Been a while since I fiddled with it but I think turning it in speeds up the idle.
