Default Re: Well there it is - built!

I had a heck of time getting mine together and i think I can ride it pretty safely after a year.

When you pull the clutch lever it should move the clutch arm. If it doesn't you might need to adjust the cable.

The throttle is important to get right. I didn't and seized my engine. Did you know you could adjust the throttle cable with the nut on top of the carb. The thing that looks like buddist temple. And the end of the cable sheath should be inserted into that thing as well. The throttle control won't move near as much as you probably think it should. I rung mine off trying to squeeze a little more out of it. Cheap plastic you know.

I wasn't on the grassy knoll but I'm pretty sure it wasn't a man with a gun. I think it was an umbrella, he might have been brit.
