Hi,as long as the bike doesn't cut out whilst on track I wouldn't worry about the idling. Most minimotos don't idle too well.

Cheers Simon

Check the free things first. Clean carb, Check/clean air filter, Check coil gap(0.4mm), Has any part of the clutch come detached or malfunctioned or broken. If the clutch is dragging from tickover it will cause your symptoms.

Could be worth changing spark plug although normally when they play up they cause difficult starting.

check your clutch for the no power, my bike had me stumped for a few days till I adjusted the clutch no it flys

That's a rep clutch and looks like the grub screws are not wound in enough so it will be hitting very low rpm wind them in 360 degrees and test the bike afain

Yes if your clutch is set anything like the picture then it will cause you issues.

A failing coil can give symptoms like what you are experiencing but unless you have another coil to try then I would exhaust all other options first because coils are expensive. Not sure how much a rep coil is but genuine coils are about 60 if memory serves me correctly.

That's looking a lot better than the last picture. Once your used to doing it it's not too bad a job

Yeah before it wouldn't move,now it bites to high so just trial and error I think
