Clean the carb. Clean the tank. Any aftermarket filter or pipe?

Could your throttle cable be routed improperly? Does idle change when you turn the handlebars?

Something is still not right with the throttle cable. It needs to be repositioned, lubed, adjusted something. Hard to know without seeing it. But when you turn bars and engine speed changes it pretty much has to be throttle cable issues.
Really need to get it sorted cuz, obviously, it's pretty unsafe.

is the throttle cable long enough? Does it tighten up when you turn the bars? It should have slack/ play if you turn the bars wither direction. Make sure the air filter is clean too.

I know this sounds stupid but is the key in the "on" position? Gas on? We've all forgot about that every now and then. Even though it may not be the airfilter, clean that thing anyways. Depending on the filter and how dirty it is, it can affect how your bike runs.

LOL! Dude if the thing accels when turning left you have pre-set throttle control when riding wheelies!!!!

as far as a motorcycle is concerned is a fifty in anyway safe??? There is no way to make a fifty safe.

YES, CHAD is in the fifty community.
