PW 80 Carb Help!

Recommended Posts

So I just bought a pw 80 to fool around on. But whenever I try to kickstart it it doesn't start until I give it gas while I start it. And when I get it started it doesn't idle. I have to give it gas for a good 10 seconds before I can let go of the gas and it will idle. And when I'm in gear, if I stop and am not giving it any gas, it dies. I am not good with carbs at all so please explain with a lot of detail. Any help appreciated!

Mine had a similar issue. Pull the carb, and give it a good cleaning. I made the mistake of just dropping the bowl and needle, I had to redo everything again and this time clean the jets. I was amazed at how much gunk was still inside.  Runs great now!
