I could not find a free download. You can go to www.repairmanuals.com and probably purchase a manual there. Also Google "motorcycled repair manuals". If at all possible, only get a factory service manual. Haynes and Clymer are not nearly as helpful. Gas/oil mix should be 32/1. That's 4 ounces of 2 stroke engine oil per gallon of gas.
ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).
Drain the carburetor. There should be a plug on the bottom of the carb float bowl. Remove the plug then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.
Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Pay special attention to the main jet. Check the main jet, the stock jet is #360. Remove the idle screw on the outside throat of the carb and also the air screw on the intake where the air filter attaches. Spray into the screw holes as well.

Be sure to put these two adjusters back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the slide back in the throat of the carb but move the clip on the jet needle to mid-range. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. If the problem is still present, remove the exhaust pipe and try again. The exhaust could be restricting the flow of burned gas out of the cylinder. The only other thing would be the crank seals. Post a comment to get back to me.
