That makes a lot of sense. After a cold start it usually is rough, but
powerful, soon after the engine feels very weak until it warms for a few
moments. Perhaps I'll try leaving it parked and running the engine for a
minute or so before going anywhere.

 Hi,I have a SB 50 ELITE and the sputtering(four cycling ),to me is
normal and has nothing to do with the spark plug.Mine has a little
electric operated solenoid type choke on the carb with 2 wires on
it..There is a resister type unit that heats up when the engine is
started cold and causes a rich fuel mixture in the carb and this is the
choke action without the usual butterfly flapper type..It richens the
fuel mixture only when engine is cold.When the resister reaches a preset
temperature,circuit opens and solenoid no longer feeds in extra fuel.The
engine then goes into its normal two stroke mode and there you are,until
you start the engine again, when it is cold.SUGGESTION.Do not mess with
that solenoid and do not let anyone else ,especially those that replace
the spark plug on a normal operating engine.////Storing=== Put Sta-bil
in a full tank of gas(to prevent rusting)as directed and if stored in
freezing tempertures,remove battery and keep it where warm.
May your day be blessed.       N. P. J. F.
