Hey Angelfire,

What you describe sounds like a carb problem. The simplest way to check would be to borrow another carb from any esteem even a zen would do for testing and see if the problem is solved.

The total time taken to remove and refit a carb is not more than 20 mins max.

Try that down and then get back to us for further diagnosis.
