swap the wires first and see if that helps and then try swapping carbs. Check to see if you have exhaust obstruction or airbox obstruction.

did you check the reeds? If the plug is wet you may have pinched a oring and have a little antifreeze leaking in there.

You dont need topull te carb. just pull up on the choke cable and it should be free for about a 1/16 of an inch before you start moving the plunger.

Hi there in my last post I stated I did a carb clean, a reed check, check pipe for obstructions, swapped wires and got lots of spark and gas all seams good but that jug still runs cold.
