Re: HOW TO RE-INSTALL LML 125 2t CARBURETTOR?

Ive only ever done it on a px not an lml, and it is doable.

It is easier if you remove the air screw but not essential, have you popped the grommet out the carb box

The one on the front brake is worked by the MC plunger and switch on the underside of headset, strip the switch and clean it. The back brake means stripping the pedal out. It may require a new switch. Slacken the back ...

Re: gears

For a well used or tuned motor it's worth converting to EFL. They are much more robust. But you need layshaft, gears, cruciform , selector shaft and selector box (or change the inners) Failing that buy the best cruciform you can and beware of the cheaper ones.
