Not Idle

This morning's ride was rougher than I expected. The first stop, the engine died. The second stop, the engine died. I pulled off, put the scooter on the center stand, and adjusted the idle set screw a couple of turns clockwise*, which resolved the problem, but I may have to monkey with it a bit more over the next few days. I'll keep you posted.

* Now, I'm no gearhead... but it's amazing how sensible some of these things are, once you get a look at 'em. In this case, the idle set screw simply sets the minimum amount of throttle possible, and is pushing against tension put on it by the throttle return spring. Simple!
