Post scoot wont start=(
Normally it starts first or second kick, everytime. The last few times however it's taken several kicks(up to 10), before it starts and then idles a bit lower than normal. After that it seems to run just fine.

Today it took 7 or so kicks before it started...I stopped to get gas and it won't start up again. Ideas?

About 2100 miles. I left it at the gas station and i'm gonna bring it home later this afternoon. I cleaned the carb a few hundred miles ago. I could check the plug. And i could change the oil, I've only done that once, maybe 1200 miles ago.

I put in a new plug and it fired right up first kick. The old one didn't look too nasty but i guess it was fouled? Does it need more air then?

Doesn't need anything but a new plug...which you did. A plug don't last forever in a two stroke.
