hello, i have a 49cc pocket bike with an after-market pipe and reeds given to me by a friend and for some reason it does not want to accelerate, you have to slowly open the throttle while your moving or else it bogs out, i did clean the carb and I'm still playing around with the needles, i noticed that it accelerate better when i unscrew the low needle but the bike is already running rich, like there is a LOT of smoke coming out of the pipe. now i never own a pocket bike before so i don't know if this is normal or not but some help would be greatly appreciated.

thank you

Maybe theres just too much oil in your gas? oil doesnt burn as readily as gas does, if you over do it it will be a slug.... I would try starting with a fresh tank of gas, mixed per the manufacturers spec on mix....

yes that was my guess too, i will try a fresh new tank with the right amount of oil, i used gas for my garden tools like weed wacker and lawnmower and they need more oil. but i don't know what oil mix i should use, i don't have a manual, what oil mix do you use?

thanks
