Agree on the die-electric grease ^^^^^ but you may also want to check you fuel tank vent air filter ect.

Really sounds like something got wet and took a crap until it dried.

nope. definately a fuel problem. did it the other day then we put it on a hill and it started. i think it might have something stuck in the fuel line or that covers it then when we put it on the hill it started and moved the debri down. i know its not water problems cuz it has happend 2 times while not even touching the water. hasnt did it lately so maybe it finally cleared its self:unsure:

try draining the fuel bowl on the carb, it may have some water in it. It only takes a little water to ruin your fun. I have seen them run for hours and the water will still sit in the bottom of the carb and shut it off when you least expect it. shut your gas off coming from the tank and drain the bowl may work may not but a quick check wont hurt.

who would have ever thought that would be the problem. Thanks letting us know. Glad it was a simple fix and your back up and riding.
