I've got a 76 KH100 that I've been working on over the past year or so. Thanks to the forum I've got it up and running but seem to have run into another problem. The engine will start right up and idle fine with no choke. I took it down to a local guy who works on small bikes and he did a tune up for me. Cold started 3-4 times and ran fine. I took it home and was just tinkering around a little last night. While idling, I revved the engine and heard it start to lose power. Before I knew it the bike stalled out. I waited about 6 hours before I did anything and when I went back to it the bike wouldn't start. It looks like the spark plug is wet with gas. This seems to be a consistent problem and I'm looking for someone to point me in the right direction. Any advise is appreciated.

Thanks,
Greg

I just had the carb completely cleaned in a hydrostatic cleaner. Looks brand new. Thought I had that part all set but I guess not. Back to square one.

If you have a sparkplug cap replace it with a new one as they fail over time.
After changing it check for spark.
