Had to make a steel cover where the plastic neutral switch was as it was smashed off when the chain came off. Filled the oil tank and gearbox with oil and bled the oil pump with a drill.

last Owner reckoned he had it running, possibly on engine start but not on the carburettor, it did clean up ok tho, I have it soaking in petrol, that pink shit dose come off with water and soap but not petrol.

The main jet on this carb mounts sideways parallel with the road into the bottom of the float bowl and where it normally screws in is just a brass tube with an O ring, fuck knows why they did this, possible to make changing jets easy?, it also has two floats that are not joined, they can close the needle valve individually, this would allow the bike to keep running if it falls over?

Its almost impossible to find a throttle thats not shitty and has the cable coming out parallel with the fork leg and what bike shops there are now do not keep things like that in stock anymore, I want a handle bar pad with the thing that velcros on with some chequered flag but they are now obsolete because dirtbikes don't use that style of handle bar anymore, I feel old.
