Now I am having a new issue. I took it out this weekend it ran fine, other than two min. down the trail it died due to neglect to turn the fuel lever on. I took it of the trailer today and for the life of me I couldnt get it to start with or without choke. With choke it fires up second kick every time. It took 15-20 than I took it for a run and it is hesitating before the band. 1st and second hit fine but 3rd 4th, it would nearly put me on my back but it seemed like it didnt even hit the band. It still pulled its weight but it seemed to have half the power. Can a fould plug do this? How exactly does a powerband work?

probly gas in the cyl flooding it out
my 80 is jetted lean but runs great when started--
try holding the throttle wide open 4 kicks- then kick it with ,and w/o the choke it should start-

if theres fuel built up in the bottom of the cyl it will take a lil riding to get rid of it all

and also clean the carb...
a powerband works when everythings in the engine starts to work together...
because some things like the ports, exhaust, etc have a limited range of rpm in their peak action... thats why if you want more peak you get less powerband(usualy speaking)...
