Hello crosby, it still sounds like a fuel delivery problem or fuel mixture. Also a possibility is a restricted exhaust. Like carbon buildup that is creating too much back pressure. The carb being "blown out" is not going to properly clean it. The best way to clean all the jets and passages is to remove it & have it boiled or ultrasonic cleaned. The not being able to kill problem is a wiring problem. The spark is not being shut off, (voltage) Trouble shoot these areas and let me know what you find. I hope this helps.

I did have similar problem with my Piaggio vespa. It's related to electronic device.

You really should obtain an owner's handbook - and read it.

Some 2-stroke engines used an oil injection system which is or was considered superior to mixing oil and petrol which is fine and dandy if it works ok and if the rider can remember to top up the oil container - if it works and is topped up there is no need to mix oil with the fuel.

Some oil injection systems proved unreliable and some riders proved unreliable and both scenarios result in expensive engine damage.
Many more experienced riders opt to forget the oil container and play safe by mixing oil with the fuel while others continue to use the oil injection system, insisting it is adjusted so there is a hint of blue smoke from the exhaust proving it is working.

There should be a mechanical release fitted. Insert your ignition key. Push the key away from you, further into the key hole. While pushing the key turn it counter clockwise, the wrong way. The seat should 'pop' open.
