Hey there guys/gals...just droppin' in to say hi...So far, have LOTS of toys but just bought my son a little '77
Honda 90...need some advice with it...I got it running and it did ok up to about 1/4-1/2 throttle and then
would cut out and sputter (no power past half throttle)...took the carb apart and cleaned it up good...all
passageways are open...getting gas into the bowl...now it won't start...getting excellent spark...I even
sprayed a little starting fluid where the air intake is and it won't even fire...any ideas? I blew air through
every single opening in the carb, including the large and small jets...Do I need to adjust the little clip on the
needle one way or the other? I turned the gas screw on the outside out 1 1/2 turns and kept going out 1/2 turn each time and
nothing...If I'm getting spark, I'm assuming the points and the little jobby under inside the frame are ok...
Just dumb founded, please help me out...Thank you!

welcome to the boards.
the common cause of your problem is the wrong size main jet.
my 200x did the same thing but it could be a number of problems...
