Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.

Expert:  JON replied 4 months ago.

this is most likely caused by a partially clogged carb jet. You can try some mechanic in a bottle, but I would suggest remove carb and cleaning it with carb cleaner manually as it is most effective. Before you remove carb check all springs and make sure they are not stretched
