Well I guess I'll star looking for problems. Kill switch, Spark, Clean carb etc. I don't have time for this shit. It ran fine and then boom.

After reading this board the last few weeks I'm beginning to wonder if 4 strokes are for people who like to work for 8 hours to ride for 4 :D

Follow these 4 easy steps and you should be running in no time.

1. Pull carb and clean it.
2. Pull carb and clean it.
3. Pull carb and clean it.
4. Repeat steps 1 thru 3.

You have a problem if your choke wont stay out. Something is gummed up or there is some debris in there. Make sure you clean all your jets out well. Hold them up to the light and make sure you can see through them. Take your time. After you have cleaned the carb, put it back on and try again. If still nothing, put in another new plug. I have had a bad one right out of the box.

Don't give up, were here to help ya!
