Default stalling at low revs

Hi all,

I have a question relating to my buggy engine stalling at low revs. I have broken in and tuned the engine and all was well. I recently changed fuels and now when I go full throttle from idle the engine kind of bogs down and sometimes stalls. I have tuned the high end so all I can assume is the low end is not right. I have been leaning out the low end with no results.

Any suggestions?

Keep leaning low end. At some point it will idle up or lean bog. If it lean bogs from idle you will know you went too far. Make sure you are testing for lean bog after engine is fully up to temp. Run on track for at least 5 minutes first.

Is there any way you can post a video? Sometimes it's hard to describe if you don't know what to look for. A video of the engine running with decent sound will tell us all that's needed to help you.
