hanging clutch shoe or bronken spring.

To big of an idle gap.

u have a fast idle. Turn your idle screw to the left until it stops. If that does not fix the problem, take the clutch bell off and look at the shoes and bearings. You might need to sand your bell or deburr your shoes if there is a bunch of slag. or you have a broken clutch spring resulting in a hanging shoe. if you run it like that (and it probably is dying on you) your clutch bell will get hot so check the bearings.

Default losi

make sure your clutch springs arnt broke . and check your clutch bell spacing make sure the bell is not rubbing your flywheel, or the idle speed is to high . your lowend setting might be rich when cold then leaning out as the motor gets up to temp idling to high hope this helps

very true before i could just use throttle trim i had to get new shoes bearing all that now works great and can just use throttle trim and idle

seattle, fyi if your clutch is fine and you start tuning the engine pay attention to the idle speed. you said you bottom end is rich, if you lower the idle you will prob have to lean the bottom end.
