    Take the exhaust pipe off and look up the poet for signs of piston damage .

    You may need to set the float level and clean the needle and seat to stop the carb flooding.

    I found the bogging issue one of my reed cage gaskets has a leak and the float was exactly what I was thinking.....tweaking the little tab the seat rests on?

    A lot of people use a gasket on both sides of Reed cage.. DO NOT use silicon. Tighten incrementally in a criss-cross pattern to spec.
    7 ft. lbs. IIRC. Check the manual.
