Re: Flooding/bogging at low Speed

You tried advancing that at all?

I'd go 19 and see if that helps. Good luck.

Re: Orange sparks out the exhaust?

What pipe are you using? We're you thrashing it prior to the sparks coming out the back? If it s a pipe with a lagged end can [like old frescos] then it might be the lagging burning out. This usually occurs when the engine is really hot, or the lagging is old and giving up. Worse case scenario is yo...

Re: Starting Problems

Just take the filter off entirely and try that. You might need to richen the mixture on th...

Re: Kickstart shaft

Camb Lamb are good, so are pretty much any of the decent UK traders. One of my personal favs is Saxon Scooters up north, great service.

otherwise AF, beedspeed, taffspeed, et al.

My only advice would be don't buy cheap Indian fare off eBay. I know because i keep doing it :0)

Re: Lack of Posts

Great post above, as a mac user and not at all up to speed with tapatalk [??] how can i post pics from my computer?

I tried the flicker account thing and had no luck. I'd certainly post more if i could post pics as pics often start a conversation.

Great site though.
