ok, bikes been running good. went to ride, got halfway down the driveway and it died. I forgot to turn the fuel valve on, so i turned it on, and now i cant get it to start. I put the bike on its side and fuel pours out the fuel tube out the bottom. bike still wont start. has spark, i took the carb off and cleaned it. still nothing. any ideas? Im still kinda new to 2 strokes. Thanks

Went out today after the bike had been sitting about a week, kicked it a few times and it stutered so i kept kicking it....finally fired and laid down about a 2ft by 4ft glaze of oil on the ground from the exhaust, ran it about half throttle and once it cleared up it was business as usuall. :thumbsup

what ratio are you mixing your fuel? i mix 45-50:1... if problem occurs again maybe a fouled plug
