Thanks for suggestion , did check that, cable has slack. Just acts like choke drops to low idle , then idle hops back up. May have to tear apart and clean, was hoping someone had this problem and found it was electric choke needed replacement.

Fast idle

2007 buddy 125, starts fine , no problem, but does not drop out of high idle all the time. Also when it does drop out and idle it will occasionally hang up on idle high again. Choke issue maybe?

Gas leak buddy 125

I've read about gas leak on left side but I seem to have a gas leak on right(muffler) side. Thinking maybe from vent line?

Today I purchased a 2008 Buddy 150 International. There's an odometer discrepancy, but it's all fully explained in the paperwork, and the total mileage is under 5k. Paid $800. Been looking for a decent scoot in this class for quite some time. I was previously only a little aware of the Buddy, so I ...
