New Motorcycle-- trouble starting and not stalling

#1 Unread post by needhelp » Sun May 06, 2018 1:59 pm

I just bought a new SYM wolf classic 150 yesterday. I rode it yesterday and this morning with no problem. But I tried to take it out this afternoon, and it wouldn't start. After about 10 minutes I finally got it to start. Then, as soon as I got to a stop light, it would not stay on. As it was in 1st and I was giving it a little gas to get going, it stalled. It did this at least 5 more times before I gave up and walked it back to my garage. I have no idea what to do now.

Potentially relevant information:

- the RPM was very low. When I was at the stop light and it was still running, it was no more than 1000. When I gave it more throttle to get going, it would stall as soon as it got up to 2000. I was only just barely letting out the clutch at that point.
- I had just refueled it in the morning.
- The fuel light still turns on for half a second whenever I turn it on. Not sure if this is normal or indicating something.
- It doesn't appear to be a battery problem?
- I am brand new to motorcycles and am not ruling out the possibility that I'm making some stupid mistake.

Any help is appreciated....

it appears to be a carbed bike, so could be worth location the idle screw on the side of the carb and giving it a turn until the RPM picks up

that does seem a very low idle

You could also just try giving it a fist full of revs before feeding the cluctch out.

It's hard to say what the problem is.
Sure it is not from the battery.

Try cleaning the carb jets. It will take you an hour to do it.
