    3.3 ascending idle issue

    just installed a new in box 3.3 (#5407). motor started and idled for a few seconds then began to slowly increase rpm. Before i could get it shut down the clutch had engaged and the wheels were spinning pretty good. Did i ruin motor by overspeeding during break in? The throttle position never changed. Factory carb settings were not altered. Anyone have experience with this?

    Lean LSN. Richen it 1/16 of a turn.

    Do your break-in process to a T.

    Linkage not catching somewhere , check to see that carburator isn't lose at motor connect , and vacuum lines have no leaks , throttle slide boot could be bound up , easy stuff to check
