Re: Engine cuts out on initial turn of throttle. PX 125

Thanks for the advice chaps. I will try the various suggestions and see how I get on. If I still can't crack the problem then I suppose I might have to think about replacing the carb, however I was hoping to avoid that.

Re: Engine cuts out on initial turn of throttle. PX 125

Thanks for advice, I have cleaned the carb/jets within an inch of there life. The plug has been replaced with a new one but the problem remains. If I turn the throttle very quickly I can get past the point of the engine cutting out and then the engine runs fine and pulls away no problem. I can avoid...

Engine cuts out on initial turn of throttle. PX 125

Hi My initial thought was the above problem would be sorted by a really good carburettor clean. However the carb has now been cleaned thoroughly with carb cleaner and then a really good blow through with an air line and the problem remains the same. If I turn the throttle quickly I can manage to avo...

Carburettor slide/Throttle linkeage connection

Has anyone any idea why the hook from the carburettor slide keeps jumping out of the hole it is supposed to fit into on the throttle cable linkeage. I have taken the carburettor out and cleaned it but since re-fitting it I cannot get the hook to stay in place. Is this a known problem?. Any ideas how...

HOW TO RE-INSTALL LML 125 2t CARBURETTOR?

After spending hours of futile attempts to put my carburettor back into the air box of my lml 125 I have had to finally admit defeat. There seems no way I can get the carb back in with the air mixture screw in place. Therefore thinking I was being clever I put the carb in with the air mixture screw ...

Re: Painting rear hub

I presumed I would have to use a heat resistant paint as the hub would get a bit hot when in use, am I wrong in this, and would normal rattle can paint do the job just as well?

Painting rear hub

I would like to paint my rear hub a cream/old English white sort of colour. I was hoping I could use a heat resistant paint similar to exhaust paint. Unfortunately I can only find black, orange, etc but nothing close to what I am looking for. Does anyone know if anyone makes such a colour in heat re...

Re: GTS COOLANT QUESTION

Hi chippy, Eventually I contacted Piaggio directly and they came back and said that I do have a magnesium alloy engine. So I have installed an appropriate coolant. I think this is something that people should know about as I wonder if other people are confused on this issue. Thanks for your reply
