Here's your answer,,,, take it back to where you got it, and get your money back. Then go buy a Jiffy! I'll admit, those Strikemasters "look" pretty n'all, but they just don't cut the mustard when it comes to "durability". I had to take 3 different Strikemasters back to the store in a 2 week time period before I landed on a Jiffy. It reall seems like ya gotta "baby" those Strikemasters,, if you don't, they'll break,,, ( choke lever, throttle cable, cer clip). Jiffys can take a SERIOUS BEATING over the years and never seem to disappoint.
