On those itty bitty carbs the mopeds use, a in-line clear fuel filter is mandatory, also if you are running the standard E-10 (Ethanol blended) fuel,,, run Stabil in it. And keep the tank FULL never let it have much air in the tank when left un-operated for more than a couple weeks. If you have to store it for more than a month or two find a farm or marine pump that will sell you a can of Ethanol free fuel add Stabil turn the gas off and let it idle till it stops.
 
Your symptom is typical of a fouled carb , +1 on pulling the float bowl and giving it a dose of spray carb cleaner..
