Oh, so the carb was opened yesterday? Double check the slide and the diaphragm. Sometimes the spring gets caught and doesn't allow the slide to move up like normal. Also, many times there isn't a proper seal in the edge of the diaphragm due to a bit of dirt or the cap slightly bent. Happens all the time.

Yea it really sounds like you are just adding more air when you twist the throttle, have you checked to see if you have a steady flow of fuel to your carb? it might be getting enough to idle but not enough to rev up.

i double checked everything again and checked to make sure everything was super clean in the carb and now it won't start at all it just turns over,it's getting plenty of fuel and has good spark and compression and everything else seems good but it just doesn't start.Is there something i could have overlooked?
Fuel to air mixture? It's happened the same to me before a while back.

Did you check the position of the float, the arm may have gotten bent when you were cleaning it. To check it take the bottom of the carb off hold it level upside down. The line where the 2 halves of the float are fused together should be exactly parallel with the surface of the carb like this...

Update:i feel like an idiot,but i checked all of my wiring and lines again and i noticed the ground on the cdi was corroded through, i fixed this and bam scooter started right up,i'm guessing it was making enough contact to run sometimes

marklorenzi: I just bought one of the Fleetwoods. They look like a clone of the Honda XRM's they sell overseas. It is in transit now and I should get it this week. I will try to post my experience here. Call me the guinea pig hahaha.
