thanks stu...was gonna put it in there.


Right, it cuts out when you are about 2-3 mins into a journey when it has first started up. The place where i got it serviced and bought it says that there could possibly be some dirt etc in the fuel system and be clogging up the jet, carb etc so I need to clean it out

The carb etc can be fiddly because of the tight fit but once you do it once it really isnt so scary and there's no more "oh god what if I take it apart and cant put it back together!"

:stupid: just don't adjust anything inside, and don't take out or move any of the adjustment screws.

The carb can be stripped down quite easily, it you remove the throttle stop and mixture screws - just count how many turns to undo and use same number on re-assembly (WRITE THE NUMBERS DOWN). Any fine adjustment can easily be done once re-fitted and engine running (after warm-up). Set throttle stop for correct tick-over and adjust mixture screw for highest revs. adjust both till correct. Try 'snapping' open throttle, should not 'hesitate' if so, mixture still not quite correct (or your timing is out!).


Othe parts of the carb just screw out and re-fit firmly (no adjustment) except the throttle slide / throttle needle - the needle can usually be fitted into the top of the slide in three positions - note which one its in and re-fit to same point.


Do not use abrasives anywhere within the carb.


Blow out channels using air


Any emulsified fuel (brown sticky stuff) can usually be persueded to go away by washing in clean petrol (I've found model aircraft fuel especially good at this).


Have a go - As long as you are careful, you will be OK.


All the best

OK if your really dont want to take the carb apart then the next best option is to use Wynns Carb Cleaner (Its an aerosol spray).


Take off the Air filter and run the bike on a very very high tickover, or about half throttle, then spray the carb cleaner directly into and around the carb inlet.


Forthe rest of the fuel system, clean fuel is the best cleaner.
