Default Very slow KM Baja

Hi. I've got problem with my KM Baja. It's very slow with serial pipe. When I want to move it I must give half the gas. What's the best carburetor settings for King Motor 29cc Baja? Original settings from Baja 5b doesn't work.

make sure your carb linkage is working right- adjust it so when your finger is off the trigger the carb is closed, and when you go full throttle, it opens all the way. its simple for that to get mixed up. next, make sure your brakes are spinning free. sometimes on a crash the brake disk can get crooked and drag. next, check your clutch, make sure the spring is on right. and that the pads arent down to the metal.

I'm guessing he means stock exhaust.

Thank you. I checked everything what you wrote and it's all ok. it must be wrong carburetor settings. low needle it's ok but high it's wrong (baja not enter to the high speed). Anyone know about km 29cc engine carb settings?

As with any 2-stroke motor there's no "magic setting".
You'll have to keep adjusting it until you find the sweet spot.

Usually you'd turn it all the way in, then unscrew it 1 and 1/8 to 1 and 1/4 way out and fine tune it from there.

When I bought my KM Baja, it was very slow with the stock pipe on it.
I put on a Dominator pipe and now its very fast. Hope that helps. :>)
