Could it be that you have a solex brand of carb on it, strange thing
Being not aware of the exact type you are dealing with i can only speak in
The choke device is in the ideal carb not existend and it can operate w/o
it. Meaning that it must be possible to manouver it in a position where it
doesn't interfere with the gasflow. when applied it has to shut the airflow
partially to enrich the mixture going in the cylinder.
From what you describe i can think of 2 ways to resolve the problem,
ignition wise wrong timing gives also foul plugs and bad (starting)
behaviour. Don't know what timing it needs, but 1,5-1,8 mm (before tdp)
pre-detonation is always OK.
Maybe someone has put in the wrong jet, only way to findout is to replace
with a smaller one...
other approach could be changing parts from good working mopeds to findout
if this solves the problem..
can't find more open doors to kick in..

Any help would be appreciated.
