comment Carburetted motorcycle stalls when accelerator is applied
I have read, however, that incomplete combustion and misfiring might, on the contrary, indicate rich condition? Again, I would have to confirm by checking the spark plugs for “wetness”. And still, that does not explain, why it worked fine for two days, and then decided to quit.
