the clutch slips with my 7 year old on it. is the clutch shot or can it be adjusted. i have a clymer manual but it just says to replace it. also it starts just fine and runs but it seems like its cutting out at anything over 1/4 throttle. it revs up but its just not right. new plug and the carb has been cleaned. air screw out 1.5 turns. the plug i took out is black and has some black carbon on it, not really wet though.new plug in it and still runs the same.i'll take off the carb again and clean once more. other threads said alot of them run rich and to go down on the main jet one notch. it does leak a little gas when i'm starting it or when it is turned off but stops leaking once running or after i turn it off. any help would be great. thanks so much.
