qt50 problems

So, i have a moped. Dont judge. Its an 85 yamaha qt50 and it starts terribly and does not idle. To keep it running i am always giving a little throttle. Any ideas? carb has been cleaned a million times could possibly need a rebuild/new one. Any opinions on this carb?

i know its only $25 but... good enough?

for such little cash, it wouldn't hurt to try. is it a PITA to take off the carb? if not then not really any big deal right? and if its the same as your original carb and its not so good then you could use all the seals and such to rebuild your original.

got any pics of that bad boy?

I always wanted a moped as kids our neighbor had one that didn't run every once and a while we would see him pull it out of the shed and try and get it running. He never did but we all thought that gas powered bike was the coolest thing ever.
