Does this sound like a carb issue? Is the idle hand screw mucked up? Also, are there any online guides to carb stuff?
Rosie's Sherpa was jetted pretty lean from stock & wouldn't run well when cold - maybe the idle has been adjusted up to try & compensate?? Have a play with the idle adjuster anyway.
